There are mannequins and then there’s FitBot. It’s not mobile nor does it have limbs. What it does so well, however, could be a major boon for clothing stores and fashion brands. See, the FitBot, as its name implies, adjusts its bodily contours to a specific clothing size. It used to be male only, now there’s a female version. (Pictured below.)
The FitBot is currently used by Estonian online retailer Fits.me. To remove the guessing part of buying clothes via an online store. What’s really brilliant about the FitBot is the indefinite modularity. Meaning it can adjust itself to any measurements and find the right clothes all the time. Of course, this requires the customer to divulge their own measurements for accuracy’s sake.
The robot is part of a virtual fitting room service for online retailers created by Estonian start-up Fits.me. Customers shopping for clothes at a participating site enter their measurements online (height, chest, arm length, torso, and so on), then see photos of a real-life mannequin shaped just like them (only headless) “trying on” items in various sizes and styles.
