From TeamLab, Japan, a prototype of smart hangers react to shoppers and display outfit combinations on nearby screens.

Individual hangers are embedded with digital tags. As shirts and other apparel items are lifted from clothing racks, digital screens are triggered to provide suggestions on how to combine the items held by the customer.

Though the system seems less granular than other ideas of embedding RFID tags inside individual clothing pieces, reprogramming hangers could help retailers reuse the tagging technology.
