It's disheartening to realize how many hours get wasted agonizing over the right outfit in the morning, which is why 'Tailor,' a "smart closet" app, is taking the agony out of getting dressed. Using tiny sensors on each piece of clothing, Tailor's AI can learn a user's fashion sense and make weather-appropriate recommendations for each day's garb.

Essentially, this smart closet is the result of applying the Internet of Things ethos to clothes. Since the clothing sensors know which clothes the user wears and which they tend to leave mothballed, Tailor gains an understanding of its user's style preferences and can make recommendations based on those habits.

Tailor also holds promise for the clothing industry in the form of e-commerce. If Tailor is widely used, it will have the most up-to-date information on clothing styles, meaning that it could one day provide new clothing options to its users and also allow its users to sell their unused clothing to other buyers who would actually don them.
