Let your closet tell you what to wear
Historically, picking the right clothes for the occasion have been a problem. The Clever Closet integrates with the personal calendar and the weather and highlights suggestions for the consumer..
The Clever Closet eliminates the daily confusion of “what should I wear today?”. It manages the consumer’s wardrobe by integrating with the daily clothing needs of the consumer (based on calendar, weather, etc.) and suggesting clothes appropriate for the occasion using a cloud database and hardware and LEDs near the hangers.
Easy Closets provides an easy-to-organize closet system. However, it is quite expensive, priced at close to $1500. It also does not offer software to aid the user in choosing clothing for the day
What to Wear? provides software that allows the user to upload photos and data of their clothing, and then analyzes the data to provide a suggestion of what to wear. It does not provide any hardware for storing the clothing, however.
Snappy Dresser provides both storage and software for analyzing the user's clothing preferences. However, it is only a concept idea, and it has yet to be implemented.
