Remember Cher Horowitz’s high-tech virtual closet in 1995’s Clueless? Who else to look to for the savviest fashion must-haves in technology? For the ultimate Fashion Hero, a revolutionary closet technology has been developed called Swivel that allows you to virtually try on clothing just like Cher! The technology designed by FaceCake uses Kinect to project yourself “wearing” your favorite clothing, accessories, and make up on a digital screen! Currently, the technology is only intended for clothing and department stores, but with a little development, it could easily enhance every chic style guru’s closet experience for the future.
