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?

    I think it is. it helps because its so much faster than trying every single thing you like on. But it might not look the same as it does on the mirror than on you. I do think that’s its a great idea. Yes i would be interested in using this because its so much faster than trying on everything.

    It save them time in they do not have to go to the store in look around. So i like it i think its safe in people can use it in try on different stuff they like thats in stores. So in think people should use it in don’t waste there time.

    I don’t think i would use this because I would rather try on my clothes and see how they fell, because just because it looks good doesn’t mean that it fits good. I think they could put other stuff besides clothes on u.

    i think that’s good because u don’t have to try nothing on u jest have to pick from the mirror but the thing is that ill be really hard to us because u doing everything with your hands and u have to learn ho to u it and things but i think ill be goood because it will really help people because they wont have to spen more time on the dresing rooom then most of then do

    I think this is a good idea. I don’t see how it would hurt teens. This sounds really cool, I would like it. I feel this is a really good idea because trying on clothes in the dressing room takes a long time and its really boring. In think this idea would work with both boys and girls but girls mostly!

    I think that tees will love this idea.Cause it is a faster way to try on outfit. then they don’t have to try an a lot of outfits. The tees will go to the store juts to use it to try on things. So it is a vary good idea.

    this is a really good idea becuase it will save everybody time and also shoe people more of there inventory so they will have potentioal to buy more cloths. if i was in a store then i would want to have this in there even tho it probably cost alot, it will make money in the future

    i think its a good idea. its a good idea because it would give more teens to look at the store and they can have more fun instead of just trying on clothes all day long. so i think that this will help alot with clothes. so yea i think these little mirror things in all stores.

    I think it is a good idea because it would help teens figure out weather they look good or not in the outfit they wanna wear. I know how i am in the mornings i always have to look at what i wear so i can be helped with something like this i dont see a problem with it.

    I really don’t think it is because you can see your self in the mirror. You can already see your self any way so it don’t really matter.

    I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN IT. BECAUSE I DONT WANT 2 GO THREW THE HASSLE OF TRYING IT ON. THEN I HAVE TO TAKE IT OFF AND PUT MY CLOTHES ON. I THEN HAVE TO GO TO THE FRONT AND PURCHASE IT. BUT WITH THIS I CAN JUST SEE WHAT I LOOK LIKE IN IT WITH OUT CHANGING MY CLOTHES. IT WOULD SHORTEN THE TIME BY A LOT. THAT IS WHAT I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION. SO HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

    i think that this will be in the future because as the videos say men don’t like to try on clothes and so this will be a big hit for them and for the girls this would be a lot more easier to just try this on but i think that you will use a lot more money then usual because you don’t have to leave

    i think this is a good idea because when you buy things sometimes it was try on and someone could had did something to it and then you bought it and you out of lucky. this is a bad idea because if you want to try on a bath suit and you put it on face book it showing your body and you wouldn’t want that to happen. i think this will be the future i will use it but not put them on face book.

    I think this is cool. But then again, this just makes it easier for people to be lazy. I mean what’s wrong with actually trying on the clothes? I don’t know, anyways yeah I do somewhat like the idea. You can see how you look in outfits faster this way.

    THIS IS STUPID! Why spend thousands of dollars on a mirror. Just try the clothes on! It’s not that big a deal. Stop being lazy and relying on technology for everything!

    Honestly it is pretty cool. Something i think a lot of people. Maybe could be the future of retail. But it could also hurt people using facebook because if someone didn’t like what they where wearing in the picture the could make fun of them.

    I THINK THIS IS A STUPID IDEA. ONE BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENED TO TRYING CLOTHES THE OLD WAY. ARE PEOPLE MORE LAZY THEN EVER? SECOND WHAT IF THE SHIRT YOU VIRTUALLY TRY ON LOOK GREAT ON YOU BUT IN REAL LIFE IT DON’T. I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD JUST STICK TO THE REGULAR WAY AND QUIT BEING SO LAZY.

    i think this is the future of retail. i would rather do this than having to try on all the clothes. and plus since you can send the pics to facebook then alot more people would probrably use it. this will most likely be in every clothing store on earth if it sells. and its really cool how its motion touch screen. and on a mirror its so awsome.

    yes. it is the future of checking out clothes. teens would like it especially girls who love trying on clothes. its a good idea cause you dont have to take your clothes off. i think that it would be a huge time saver. but i think it will be a little to much of money.

    I think it’s pretty kool. It is definitely something that i would use. And I wouldn’t have to waste my time trying on clothes. I could have more time to shop. I think every other teen has just about the same opinion as i do when i say those things.

    i don’t think that it will be good to shop at Macy’s because they have higher prices. You can buy the same thing at another store cheaper. I like cheaper stores because your money goes a long way.

    I MEAN IF YOU COULD TRY ON CLOTHES WITHOUT ACTUALLY PUTTING THEM ON WOULDN’T IT BE A BIG HELP. I MEAN THINK ABOUT IT. PEOPLE SPEND TO MUCH TIME SHOPPING. I MEAN SOME PEOPLE TAKE A WHOLE DAY TO DO IT. I MEAN THIS WOULD BE A GUYS LIFE SAVER TOO. THEY PICK A SHIRT AND SOME PANTS AN THINK IT LOOKS GOOD. WELL MOST GUYS. SO NOW THEY CAN LOOK AT IT AND SEE IF IT LOOKS GOOD OR NOT. SEE THIS COULD BE A BIG HELP. SOME PEOPLE OUT HERE LOOK AT SOMETHING AND THINK IT LOOKS GOOD THEN THEY GET HOME TO SEE THAT IT LOOKS HORRIBLE. I MEAN YEAH THEY CAN GO TRY IT ON TO SEE HOW IT LOOKS BTU THEY HAVE ALREADY SPENT SO MUCH TIME LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT THEY DON’T HAVE TIME TO GO TRY IT ON SO THEY JUST PAY FOR TI AND LEAVE. I THINK THIS MIRROR THING OVER ALL IS A REALLY GOOD IDEA. I WOULD USE IT AND I’M SURE A LOT MORE PEOPLE WOULD TO. ITS A TIME SAVER AND HELPFUL.
