'Magic Memory Mirror' changing the way people shop for clothing

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A new high tech product is headed to dressing rooms around the country will change the way people shop for clothes.

It's being called a “magic memory mirror” because it remembers what you've tried on and sends you digital video of your outfits. You can also try on just one dress and then digitally see what it would look like in several different colors without trying on several different dresses.

The giant video screen captures 360 degrees of a shopper as they vet possible purchases. Without straining your neck, you can see exactly what you look like from the back.

Memomi's founder and CEO Salvador Nissi Vilcovsky said the product is a hit with women.

“Show you how we look from every angle. It's kind of an evolution of the old mirror,” he said.

They've partnered with Intel and tested the invention at Neiman Marcus locations in San Francisco and Dallas. Shoppers can see outfits side-by-side to compare.

Shoppers at Altar'd State at Zona Rosa shopping center were intrigued.

“I think it's pretty unique. It would be nice to compare different outfits without having to try both of them on again and again,” said shopper Madison Moorhaus.

“I think it's a great idea. I think it's really cool. Whenever my daughters go shopping the first thing they want to do is take a picture of it and send it to mom. It's kind of one step passed that,” shopper Lori Atkinson said.

“I always send pictures when I'm shopping, so I think it'd save a lot of time,” Sam Atkinson said.

Each shopper controls their data that's protected by a password. They are able to choose what they delete and who they share their images with.

The memory mirror could soon be headed to a Kansas City dressing room. The founder and CEO said he wants to expand across the country, including in Kansas City.
