A consumer's next cashmere sweater could be purchased from one of Uniqlo's vending machines -- a newly implemented shopping accessory that's about to hit the United States.
Vending machines are plentiful in Japan, so it's not shocking to hear that one of the nation's largest retailers is planning to incorporate the technology into its brand. The vending machines are set to stand six feet tall and will contain a touchscreen for users to browse styles, colors and sizes. Once a desired garment is selected, the machine will distribute the selected item through the drop box. Consumers can return their clothing by mail, or in person at Uniqlo stores for a refund, should the product not fit.
The machines can be found in airports and shopping malls, redefining the concept of fast fashion.
