3D Body-Mapping Helps Get The Perfect Fit Online Every Time

3D Body-Mapping Helps Get The Perfect Fit Online Every Time

Bodymetrics new tech lets customers virtually try on internet purchases to ensure satisfaction and minimize returns.

Emma Hutchings

3D body-mapping company Bodymetrics uses PrimeSense 3D sensors (similar to the Microsoft Kinect), to scan a person’s contours and curves. Their technology could be integrated into Smart TVs in the near future to create a virtual fitting room in your home where you can try on clothes before you buy them online. After creating a Bodymetrics account, a user could virtually wear garments from partner retailers to determine whether they fit and flatter their body. Suran Goonatilake, CEO of Bodymetrics, said:

When you walk into a clothing retailer or browse an online fashion site, they have no idea of your body size, shape or style. Bodymetrics body-maps you within a few seconds and gets hundreds of accurate measurements and analytics of your shape. Then, we match this data to the exact dimensions of a garment and allow you to  virtually try it on your own body to see whether it is too tight, too loose or just perfect.

Bodymetrics will preview its 3D body-mapping technology at the CES 2012.
