Things We Need: Hangers That Pick Outfits For Us

Ever since we saw Alicia Silverstone‘s fully automated and computerized closet in “Clueless,” we’ve been dreaming of a system that would bring our cluttered wardrobe into the sleek efficiency of the digital age. Thanks to Japanese design firm TeamLab, we’re getting one step closer to making those dreams a reality.

DVICE reports that TeamLab has come up with a nifty hanger-and-screen setup that shows you what might look good with the item on the hanger. Problem is, it’s only in an exhibit at the moment:

Titled “Coordination,” the exhibit features hangers with embedded sensors associated with the garment on the hanger. When a shopper picks up the hanger, the nearby screens automatically display the various coordinated accessories that would best match the piece in your hand for a complete outfit.

The hanger is definitely more geared toward retail — and TeamLab says there’s a healthy number of stores that are interested in implementing the hangers. It might be a while before we have them in our closets, but any product that can ease the struggle to figure out what to wear in the morning is worth the wait.
