1. AI-Powered Virtual Reality Personal Shopping and Styling Assistants – What If a Possibility?
AI-powered chatboxes already exist to enable customers to tailor their preferences so that companies (especially Ecommerce businesses) can produce their required clothes.
However, this technology is limited and not very popular yet.
For instance, Redbubble is an e-commerce company that sells print-on-demand clothes and other products designed by sellers across the globe.
Anyone can become a seller or a buyer. The buyer can choose according to their size, color, and quantity preferences.
However, there are limitations to this. Firstly, the designs are sold based on already pre-made layouts. This limits the scope of the exact style that the buyer wants.
Also, you must wait a few days for the order to arrive at your doorstep. So, last-moment emergencies cannot be attended to.
There is also a possibility of not being satisfied after you get the product and returning it is also inconvenient for such E-commerce businesses.
There are many more limitations to the current AI-powered virtual reality personal shopping and styling assistants.
Now, imagine that you have software that requires no constant internet. Also, this software is accessible from any device, be it a phone, laptop, computer, tablet, or television.
So, every time you want something you see or create in your mind, you can manifest it to become your immediate reality.

3. Where to Proceed with Caution?
Despite all the fantabulous possibilities, there are certain factors to be wary of if technology becomes a reality. Go through them below:
3.1. It Becomes Sweeter with Patience
The waiting period before getting a product makes you cherish it more once you receive it. Patience makes outcomes better and more precious.
Thus, be it the waiting line at the cashier or the days before your delivery, you become eager and feel grateful and overjoyed once you finally get your desired commodity.
AI-powered virtual reality personal shopping and styling assistants will rob you of this precious experience.
3.2. What About the Employers?
Delivery men, professional designers, website managers, cashiers and many more will lose their jobs if the technology becomes popular and common.
This will affect the economy, social fabric, and individual lives, in a negative light.
3.3. The Initial Cost can be Expensive
Not everyone can afford the technology in the first place as it will be expensive initially when bought.
This will lead to an inconsistent pattern of public satisfaction and opportunities.
Also, there will be more division in society as people are largely influenced by their appearance and what they wear.
Looks matter and differences can cause a superiority-inferiority complex among people.
3.4. Shopping Malls Will Lose Their Value
Though the main purpose of a shopping mall is to sell and buy products, many go there for outings, dates, family shopping, or simply to take selfies.
Going to malls just for the AC in summer is a guilty pleasure for many. The salesmen and security guards also make a living based on their work there.
Thus, if AI-powered virtual reality personal shopping and styling assistants become true, shopping malls will not be there anymore.
3.5. The Joys of Real-Life Shopping
Not only will it take away the memories of shopping before festivals and celebratory occasions like weddings, proms, and parties but also replace people’s jobs with AI.
The mesmerizing feeling of going from one store to another and feeling the texture of different fabrics while bargaining with the shopkeepers can not be replaced by quick AI-powered virtual reality personal shopping.
The shopaholics will have their month of mourning if that happens.
3.6. What About Book Lovers?
Going to libraries has already been replaced by online pdfs and books. Imagine if everyone started buying books online and publishing their books in a matter of seconds.
The pure joy of going to a bookstore and exploring the shelves while taking in the musty scent of fresh paper and wood can never be enough.
Can you really replace that with a quick transaction while sitting on your couch?
You probably can not, if you know the feeling of an ardent book collector.
3.7. Over-Indulgence Can Become a Dangerous Addiction
Since the technology with AI-powered virtual reality personal shopping and styling assistants is quick, easy, and fun, it will become addictive if not controlled properly.
Many people use shopping as a way of escapism but since there are limitations to it in real life, it is kept in check.
However, this technology can become an obsession as there is no restriction, be it the effort to travel, wait in line, or the budget in the long run.
Thus, this is a matter of concern if this form of virtual reality becomes a reality.
4. Final Words
Considering all the elements and factors of expansion and areas of caution, you can decide whether you want your own AI-powered virtual reality personal shopping and styling assistants.
With the rapid development in AI, it might be possible in the future. Till then, keep your imagination wild and free.
Perhaps, you will be able to unleash your inner design, one day. Just remember, this technology will be able to make you Cinderella or her fairy Godmother, or both. Enchanting, isn’t it?
