What is fashion coming to?  In the Flagship store of Macy’s in New York city, the store is using a 72 inch (6 foot) “Magic Mirror” that takes pictures of you and then “virtually” tries on the clothes that you like so that you can see how you look in everything without actually having to try anything on.  The mirror is so futuristic that you can share your looks in the clothes on FaceBook to see if your friends like it.  Is this the future of retail?  Explain how teens or anyone who uses this device could be helped or hurt by it?  Would this be something you would be interested in using? Why or why not?

    Well i would want to get that because i hate trying on cloths it is too much of a hassle. but i think people will want to get it because it is simple. and you can show your friends the outfit and see if they like it on facebook. the programs are easy to do and then you will be able to do that on the computer. but the bad part is it will cost alot of money.

    It would be a good idea because people see what they like so they can try it on and see if there friends like it before they buy it

    I think this a good idea because people dont like trying on all kinds of clothes to go shopping it takes longer. And another reason why is because it cool all you have to do is look and see if you want it that it you dont have to change your clothes or nothing so yeah i like this though. The only problem is that how much money is it? it probably going to be very very very expensive.

    I think that it’s a cool because if you don’t want to get out of the house or you can’t leave the house you can see what you look like in an outfit. And i think its a help to people who can’t leave their home, because if there parents don’t want to leave you can see what they have at the store and next time you go you know what to get in what size. And i don’t think it would hurt anyone because i don’t see how this invention could hurt anyone.

    It probably is but that is a genius idea. Well i think that sense you can share it people could like tell you something really mean, and give you negative complements. Another bad thing is that you could have it one size on the web cam but have it is a different size in the store you are buying from. A good thing is you wont have to waste gas to try on some clothes. I would be interested in it because it is something really different and i think it would be fun to use but you just have to be really careful and and don’t let peoples opinion get to you.

    This is really cool, now from watching this I’m going to go home and go to the stores and see if they have one. I think this will really catch on because nobody wants to try on millions of clothes just for one outfit. this will help alot

    i really don’t think that this device would be a good thing to buy because if it put’s some of the stuff online some people could accidentally put something online then people get hurt because they didn’t want the specific thing online. this is not something i would want to buy because sometimes it can mess up and beside why wouldn’t anyone want to go the store and try it on then being at home trying to see if it fit’s you right. one thing that when you look at yourself in the mirror you might think it is the right thing to buy but it will not be the same if you go to the store and see then being at home and see. some teens this could benefit them because when they have this they might get interested in some kind of job when they grow up on like fashion designer not everyone though. this device for me it wouldn’t be something that would go with me.☺

    I think the magic mirror is a good idea because you don’t have to go through all of the trouble to actually go and try on all of the clothes. You can just try them on right where you are. Although its might give you an idea of what it looks like you still cant see how it fits you. You might think it will fit you, but when you actually try it on, it wont fit you the way you expected it too. I think this would be something i would enjoy trying out. Its just something different and unusual. ((=

    i think this is the future of retail and teens or anyone else could be helped by this because it would save time of having to try clothes on and you won’t be so stressed out trying to find your size and it would be something i would be interested in because you don’t have to keep looking for clothes that you can fit and you don’t have to walk around the store trying to find something that you want and it’s much easier

    I think its a good idea because if your a online shopper and do lots of cloth shopping, you’ll need to now how you look like. so thats cool that it lets you try on cloth by using the web cam. Also its cool that you can try the cloth out at the store without happen to get all the cloth you want and trying it on. Plus its cool how you can send it to your facebook and see if your friends like it. so i think they might need up using this stuff in the future.

    Yes because some people is going to try to use this.People could feel better about it because they don’t have to go to the store.And some people might be hurt because they might not have the size that they need.Yes this actually would because i don’t really like trying on clothes cause if u stink u don’t want to stink the clothes up if u is dirty and stinky.

    Yes this is a future of retail because teens will love this idea of being able to try on clothes without putting them on. The mirror does all the work. Anybody who uses this wil be helped by it because they will be able to shop more easier and fastier. Yes I would really be interested in something like this because I hate trying clothes on at the stores. Soo I would be helped by this mirror. 🙂

    I wouldn’t be interested in using this magic mirror. I would rather try on clothes myself. I would rather do that because the pants that’s in the magic mirror might look like they fit but they might not. Same with shirts they might look like they fit but they might not. I would much rather get the right size then getting the wrong size and having to go back up there again!

    i don’t like this device because i think this is not cool people is laze to stray on clothing from a mare. i would not post this on face book for other people to see. but i think that this is a bad idea. people should not go to new york and try on cloths from a mare.

    IT COULD BE THE FUTURE OF RETAIL OR NOT.
    YOU COULD BE HELPED BY THE MIRROR BY NOT HAVING TO TRY ON CLOTHS. AND WHEN YOU ARE AT STORES AND YOU LIKE IT YOU WOULD BUY IT BUT YOU GET HOME AND YOU DON’T. IT WILL ALSO HELP YOU BY SHOWING YOUR FRIENDS ON FACE BOOK SO THEY DON’T HAVE TO COME OVER OR YOU HAVE TO TAKE PICTURE AND HAND OR MAIL GIVE IT TO THEM. AND IT WILL HELP GUYS BECAUSE THEY DON’T LIKE TRYING ON CLOTHS. YOU CAN GET HURT BY IT IF IT FALLS. YES THIS WOULD BE SOMETHING I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BECAUSE I WON’T HAVE TO TRY ON CLOTHS EVERY TIME I TRY ON SOMETHING NEW.

    its is talking about the fashion they are trying to put on some new clothes for them to wear then. but they are going to get some of the clothes they are try to put on their bodies too. the fashion is to put the clothes on and then they are going to get a lot of they clothes and try if they fit them. but they are going get something to wear and buy the clothes too.

    It would be a way for less work to help teens i dont care but honestly theres no way a virtual dressing room will hurt people its just virtual no work its virtualy safe so i got no complaints it reminded me a little of wii for some aparent reason but i will get to that when i figure it out. so at conclusion techknoligy might triumph over tradition after all.

    This would be our future of clothes. I accept that the good thing is that you save time trying on clothes. It would usually take 30 minutes to try on clothes. With the machine, it would take 5 minutes. The bad thing though is that we will now be too lazy. Technology has always helped us forever. Using this, just makes us more lazy. I can argue that though. If your in a hurry, you can use it. I will be helped only small parts of time.

    I think that this really cool because you don’t have to take forever to try on clothes. I think this will help shoppers because if you look at something you don’t you don’t have to find and put it back where you got it in the first place. I think that shoppers will love this magic mirror because they don’t have to worry about dressing and undressing. I think that people would feel more comfortable with this because no one can peek at you while you are getting undressed. I really like the magic mirror because it will help the clothes shopping process go by faster and more efficient.

    I think that it can help people. Like instead of taking your clothes off you can just like…. well I guess would have to take your clothes off so you could take your pictures but, I mean it could help. I wouldn’t Do it because like i would want to see what I would look like instead of taking a picture. so yeah thats what i think.

    I think that it is a good idea and that some people will love it a lot because trying on cloths takes way to much time. And most people like me don’t like having to do that……….but at the same time people. May just like the way the cloths feel on them and how they make them feel inside. But buy them seeing what they look like on the outside in the mirror. They ant getting a chance to see how the cloths feel on them……..so they may also loss a lot of customer.lolz

    Yes, I do think this is the future of retail. I. think people would love this. I know I would love to use it to try on cloths. This could help someone because it is probably faster and easier. This might hurt someone because it’s probably electric, so keep liquids away. I think people would like this so you can know what it exactly looks like before you buy it.

    My oppinon on the mirror is that it was designed to bring in more customers which is good for the stores with the mirror t bring in more consumers but still to me I dont think its a good way to run a business because there basically tricking there customers i guess.I think that teens culd be helped by it because they can already see what they would look like with that outfit on that they picked out and if they dont like it of how it looks ok them then they can basically go on to the next design or outfit that they had for themsleves and so fforth and so on with the not liking the way it looks or the clothes isnt your type after you see how you look in it .
