A Retail Revolution

Peter Weddle

In my book Circa 2118, I predicted that AI would power a revolution in real world retail clothing stores. AI assisted humanoids working in those stores would be able to instantaneously reshape themselves to look exactly like the customer so that they could see what a new suit or dress would actually look like on them – the reverse image in a mirror being so 20th century. It’s a futuristic idea, I admit, but now there’s word that Sephora is doing something similar with their AI-enabled app. Customers can “try on” products by applying them to photos of themselves on their smartphone. Next step? Let me introduce you to your humanoid look-alike in a Sephora store near you. #Circa2118.com #AI
