It would be interesting to note that the female robot mannequin can take hundreds of female body shapes, helping about 85 percent of all female buyers.

To use the robot the customer only has to enter their height, bust, waist and other measurements online. The robot instantly takes the shape according to the provided measurements, repots Cnet.

After adopting the new technology, Hawes and Curtis, clothes retailers from Britain, stated that their sales registered an increase of 57 percent.
