(EN)

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a method for providing a robust user experience with an automated system that includes sensory output, such as touch, taste, smell or all of them, in addition to visual output.

SOLUTION: The automated system can be an e-commerce or automated shopping system. The method can visually present a user selected item for consumer purchase within a graphical user interface (GUI). Sensory output can be provided that simulates smell, touch, taste or all of them, of the selected item. A user can then made a selection in the GUI to modify an aspect of the selected item or an environmental condition for an environment of the selected item, or both of them. The visual presentation of the object and the sensory output for the item can be adjusted in accordance with the user specified modification.
