Aug '13
iDevices LLC, a leading app-enablement company and creators of the award-winning Bluetooth devices iGrill and iShower, announced  My Virtual Closet at the Broadcom Connecting Everything media event held in San Francisco.

iDevices has set up a worldwide consortium for fashion designers to collaborate with iDevices on this  Bluetooth app-enabled experience set to revolutionize the fashion industry.

The My Virtual Closet app communicates with the fashion designer’s garments using Bluetooth Smart technology. Through a discreetly placed package with a BLE chip and small coin cell battery within clothing, handbags, and shoes, designers and consumers will be able to interact like never before.

“My Virtual Closet is an idea that I had several months ago with the uproar in wearable technology,” said CEO of iDevices, Chris Allen. “It’s something I think will not only revolutionize the in-store and at home experience for customers but will add unparalleled value for designers.” 

There are two elements to the My Virtual Closet app and wearable technology experience:

1. Point-of-sale: The Virtual Shopping Assistant.

2. At home: My Virtual Closet.

Point-of-Sale: The Virtual Shopping Assistant App Provides Garment Details, Inventory LookUp, & Recommended Purchases

The Virtual Shopping Assistant app is the first element, which is encountered by consumers in-store.  Bluetooth Smart enabled garments positioned throughout the store allow for self-guided shopping, meaning more flexibility for store representatives, higher sales revenues and a flawless store flow.

The Virtual Shopping Assistant Features:

Product Information: displaysfull garment details, including descriptions, images, videos, care instructions, etc.

Inventory Look-Up: givessales assistants and shoppers the ability to see in-store inventory and order online directly from the app.

In-App Recommendations: Increasesin-store revenue through cross-sell opportunities.

Wish List: shoppers are able to add items to their personal wish list for future purchase.

Social Sharing:shoppers can share in-store pieces on their social networks.

Virtual Closet App Features:

Organize Your Wardrobe: consumers can view and edit multiple wardrobes (i.e. home, beach house, apartment, and travel).

Build Outfits: piece together an outfit based on current weather and coordinating recommendations.

After-Purchase Cross-Selling: designers can recommend correlating pieces available for purchase online or at the nearest store location.

Share with Friends: lend and request to borrow wardrobe items with other My Virtual Closet fashionistas.

Individual Garment Data: track the number of times worn, last location, most recent dry cleaning, total wears, date purchased and number of friends that own that piece.

Social Community: share your outfits with your social network.
