Cool way to integrate social media with retail

First of all: Happy New Year everybody! 🙂

A couple of weeks ago, I was doing some shopping in the south of Holland, and while waiting from my girlfriend, I found a very interesting guy…

Nedap, created a cool product called “Wear & Compare”. The way it works is very simple: You are at the shop trying different clothes and comparing normally with the help of a mirror.
This machine basically goes further: it takes pictures of you wearing the different outfits. Then you may use all the pics to help yourself make a decision or ideally you will share “how good you look” by email, Twitter message or text…  Cool!

Check out the video below to see “Wear & Compare” in action!

    “Good idea.. Limited to the rag trade at the moment but they are an innovative company.. I use their door counting software at present”

    Interesting. Of course the downside is the fact that certain people will now have to ask all their friends “Do I look ok in this? or perhaps in Blue – hang on, I'll send you that in a second” :). On a serious note, there is definitely potential for retailers to promote themselves using this service. Will be curious to see whether it catches on.

    Thanks for the comments Barney. I definitely believe that these types of approaches could generate some buzz and make a positive impact from a customer and branding experience…

    I would certainly use it. I hate shopping and have no idea what looks good or not. I sometimes end up taking a photo and sending to my other half for a second opinion. Crowdsourcing my next outfit sounds like a bit of fun

    Thanks for your comment Derry. Happy new year!
    I guess, we are so used to see technology through social media, sites and applications that we forget about this kind of experiences in the offline world. I believe there's a nice niche to apply a nice WOW factor in retail, integrated with online tools.
