Today’s invention is a way to help shops sell clothing by letting window shoppers see themselves apparently wearing the outfits on display.
People (pink), walking by a shop, step onto a ramp (red) and face the window (blue).
Inside they see some (headless) mannequins (turquoise), facing outwards, as you might expect. A pressure pad that a person is standing on, rotates the mannequin in front of them, so that it faces the mirrored back wall of the window display (green).
The ramp allows a person to adjust their face’s reflection height, so that it appears directly above the reflection of the outfit they are interested in, so that they can imagine themselves wearing it.
