If you’ve something on your mind, get it off your chest. Or ‘on’ your chest. Head down to Uniqlo and their UMood system will help you find a T-shirt that precisely matches your present state of mind.
Here’s how it works. Customers put on a wearable headset designed to monitor brainwaves. They are then presented with a series of images – sleepy kittens, a stormy day in the city, a man standing on top of a mountain. The headset detects the responses and from the data gathered, the system builds a picture of your mood. Once that’s been established, UMood makes personalised recommendations from a range of over 600 t-shirt designs. Mr Sunshine, or Little Miss Grouchy? The t-shirt says it all.
