The Bodymetrics Pod was recently showcased in a Bloomingdale’s store in Los Angeles as apart of the store’s Women’s Denim Days event. The futuristic looking capsule uses eight Windows Kinect sensors to 360-degree scan your body before finding a pair of jeans that can fit and flatter your body type. The body-mapping only takes five seconds and requires the customer to stand upright with the arms and legs apart inside the pod.
Susan Goonatilake, CEO of Bodymetrics, explains that:
Body-mapping is in its infancy. We’re just starting to explore what’s possible in retail stores and at home. Stores are increasingly looking to provide experiences that entice shoppers into their stores, and then allow a seamless journey from stores to online. And we all want shopping experiences that are personalized to us – our size, shape and style.
Bodymetrics is also planning a home-version of the pod so online shoppers can find perfectly fitted clothing items without having to go into the store to try them on.
