It’s a Saturday afternoon in 2020 and you’re gearing for a big night out but panicking about what to wear. Nothing in the wardrobe is suitable, so you head to your local shopping plaza and scurry into a 3-D scanning booth.
Moments later, the screen displays your body’s clothing measurements — known in 2020 as body metadata. The booth invites you to punch in your preferred fabric, colours and patterns. You stand outside and wait.
