    The rocket restaurant is also a headline-grabbing attraction during this year’s festival.

    Bespoke Service

    Bespoke services and individualized products seem to be an unstoppable trend in China. In the digital clothing lab booth, visitors can choose cloth and patterns using a digital interface, and then virtually try on their own designs in 3D using the AR smart mirror. If the clothing looks good, consumers can place an order directly through Taobao by scanning the QR code.

    Fancy Designs

    Imaginative designs can be seen everywhere inside the Taobao Maker Festival venue. People’s daily bags made in the shapes of seasoning packets or snacks like spring rolls or pancakes. Candles transformed into the shapes of cupcakes, candies, and ice creams. Endless imagination and creativity are on display within the festival.
