Amazon recently patented a fashion mannequin that has the ability to change size to match a customer’s physique.
This new fashion mannequin that includes an automated camera allows the time taken by a stylist to dress and photograph the mannequin to be dramatically reduced. The fashion mannequin technology would also allow customers to test the elasticity of clothing items.
