When it comes to shopping for clothes, an in-store try-on experience typically involves a trip to the fitting room—but China's Moda Polso store streamlines the task with touchscreen systems on the sales floor that use virtual avatars instead.

At the Moda Polso store in Shanghai, customers are able to interact with the screens and see virtual versions of themselves sporting different outfits, which ultimately saves them a trip to the fitting room and speeds up the decision making process.

Due to the unique way that Moda Polso approaches fashion retail, only a third of its space is set aside for displaying merchandise. The 150-square-meter store is packed with 10 touchscreens—powered by technology and systems by Pulsion—one of which is referred to as the "magic mirror" due to its larger size.
