Unsize Fits All

A smart hanger detecting size fit for the future of responsive retail environments


Finished product

The finished hanger was laser-cut with acrylic and featured an adjustable color LED.

Production process

We iterated through various designs that would be attractive while encasing the LED arduino component.

Range detector prototype

Initially, we prototyped a version of the hanger that used a range detector to react when a shopper was within range to indicate a size match. As this was bulky and wouldn’t fit into a nice form factor of a hanger, we switched to a different technology.


The final version used Arduino with a tag reacting to NFC signals, which was a much smaller form factor and could be embedded in a clothing hanger.
