I always find buying clothes online very hit and miss at the moment, as I am sure many other people do. Sizes of clothes are never the same from brand to brand and buying clothes online normally results in a few returned to the retailer.
But maybe not for long as a new Virtual Fitting Room system is already under development. watch the video after the break to see it in action.
The Virtual Fitting Room consists of a shape shifting robotic mannequin that actually let you try on the clothes before you purchase.
The company behind the concept is fits.me and they have currently created a male model mannequin that can reproduce 2,000 different body configurations.
Rather than mimicking your body shape in real time, the robot tries on a retailer’s clothing lines in every possible size on every possible body type, saving photos to a database.
When you visit the e-commerce site, you simply enter your details and Fits.me retrieves the photo of the robot surrogate recreating your specs wearing the garment of your choice so you can see the difference, say, between a medium and a large.
