Ever thought about shopping online while walking through the mall?

Well, eBay is trying out a new hybrid shopping concept at a mall in San Francisco.

It's partnered with three retailers to set up digital storefronts.

They're basically giant touch screen windows where you can browse through hundreds of items with a single swipe.

Once you find what you like, you hit order and a link will be sent to your mobile phone, allowing you to pay with a card or through PayPal.

It's all possible through what's known as connected glass technology.

You could soon see it being installed at busy airports and train stations as another way to shop without standing in long lines.
