Shoppers at Hointer scan a QR code to have their items delivered to the fitting room by speedy robots.

Hointer is a revolutionary shopping experience that enables users to pick out and try on clothes effortlessly with the help of a robotic sales staff. This blend of technology and service is the brainchild of former head of Supply Chain and Fulfillment Technologies for Amazon – Nadia Shouraboura. Once shoppers download an app, they can head into the showroom and scan the QR codes of the pieces of clothing they would like to try on. An automated backroom delivers the pieces straight to the fitting room, saving shoppers the hassle of going through stacks of clothing trying to find their sizes. When done choosing the perfect outfit shoppers simply swipe their credit cards on an in-room tablet and walk out of the store with their purchase.
