Virtual changing room: try before you buy


Smart mirrors let you try on different clothes without visiting the changing room. A simple click on the outfit you’d like to try, and the mirror will do the rest. It can also act as your digital personal shopper, by suggesting a pair of jeans that would go well with the top you’ve picked. And if you want to compare different outfits, the mirror will snap a video of each to help you make a decision. A handful of retailers are already using this technology at their flagship stores; at the Superdry flagship store in Berlin, shoppers can browse through collection by making swiping gestures, and select their favourites with an air punch.  This technology is set to transform the personal shopping experience, is it a question of time before we have them in our homes?
