Tech Radar has reported that Amazon could very well be planning to revolutionize the apparel industry if a recent patent that’s been granted and reported by Recode is anything to go by. The patent, which Amazon applied for in 2015 and was granted by the US Patent Office earlier this week, depicts an apparel manufacturing system that would quickly produce items of clothing only after a customer has placed an order.
Most online and physical clothing stores operate by manufacturing their clothes in a variety of sizes and colors in advance, selling the stock, and then re-ordering should they require more.
With this system, Amazon customers could potentially go online, select a clothing style, color and size after which Amazon’s computerized system would be able to create the item of clothing from start-to-finish all in one place and then ship it straight to the customer.
