Flimsy, acrylic clothing hangers simply do not make the cut anymore -- these everyday essentials are being upscaled. Inspired by the advancing world around us, high-tech clothes hangers may find a home in your wardrobe soon.

Clothing hangers are evolving from their standard wood or plastic frame. They are featuring more innovative capabilities, such as displaying the number of likes the article of clothing has amassed on Facebook (for retail use), to clarifying whether the hanger is free or taken via a green/red indicator (for packed closet racks). It seems that commonplace products are able to do more, with regard to the types of information they provide or the multi-purpose nature of its function. These hangers make going through your closet a true experience.
