Picking The Perfect Fit
Are you the type of person who doesn’t like to try on clothes? Trust me, you are not alone. With unflattering mirrors and long wait lines, I ask myself, “Why even bother?” The reason…we want the perfect fit! Well, believe it or not, fitting rooms may become something of the past.
The world’s first full 3D body scanner called the Body Mapping platform, may one day replace fitting rooms altogether. This new innovative technology provides shoppers with 100 different measurements of their own body, ensuring a perfect fit every time.
The scanner gives exact body dimensions by scanning your body with 3D sensors that calculate your measurements. Currently, the Body Mapping platform is being used at retail store, New Look, located in the U.K. It is helping shoppers determine which jeans will best suit them based upon its calculations.
So, how much does an innovation like this cost? Will we ever get to use it? – I know, I know, pricing on technology of this sort must be astronomical, right? Well, according to Bodymetrics, their body scanner is relatively more affordable and easier to use than other scanners that exist, which means retailers could realistically deploy it in stores. This is exciting news for the shoppers who are sick of trying on clothes to get the perfect fit. Now, with this new reasonably priced technology, who knows, maybe we will be closing the door on fitting rooms all together and instead open a scanning booth door.
