This sort of technology has been making noise for a few years now but still hasn't made it's way into common use. A computer can't tell you if the fabric is itchy, if the zipper sticks, or if the fabric pulls in a funny way.

I don't know why people complain so much about trying clothes on.

Just like the way Sears & Roebuck catalog sales drove away all stores by 1900. The retail store industry never really recovered after that.

from the article:
"Only 8% to 13% of retail shopping in the USA is done online. Impressive as future retail technology might look, it will take good old-fashioned customer service to boost those figures, says Will Young, who heads Zappos Labs. "

Long way to go....

A great start would be standardizing sizes for everything. Make them ALL the same. It would be great to KNOW I always wear size Z.
