In-Clothes 3D Scanning for size selection & virtual fashion

Apr '11
Leveraging recently released low cost scanning devices for home use, Textile/Clothing Technology Corporation - [TC]² has combined that low cost power and availability with its Size Selection, Avatar Creation, Virtual Fashion, and Weight Loss Visualization technologies developed over the years for use with high-accuracy 3D full body scans. The result is an extremely high value-low cost solution for retail, at-home, and web-enabled smart phone applications.

There are already 10 million of these devices in homes now in the form of the Kinect device for the Microsoft Xbox 360. Microsoft has publicly announced that it will be formally supporting external applications of this type later this year. [TC]² intends to launch its applications as soon as the support is commercially available.

Due to [TC]²'s 20 year history in high end 3D body scanning, we are able to create human avatars with sufficient accuracy to support apparel size selection. [TC]²'s face-from-photo application enables the customer to make digital avatars that are not only correct dimensionally, but also represent a personal likeness.

In the meantime, [TC]² has begun demonstration of its current beta version at its Cary, NC facility. The entire process of scanning only takes a matter of seconds and garment try-on can be displayed in seconds also.

“The apparel industry has been asking for a low cost, small footprint device automatically controlled by the consumer that can capture a customer's body data while wearing street clothes, with the capability to provide high value services like garment size recommendation and visualization of the garment without trying it on – and finally it will happen this year,” comments Susan Simon, [TC]²'s Senior Software Engineer.

The Kinect-based technology will be on display at [TC]²'s annual meeting of members April 27th in Cary. It is also scheduled to be shown at the Federal Consortium of Virtual Worlds conference at the National Defense University in Washington DC May 11-13 and at the British Clothing Industry's Interactive Sizing & Fashion Technology Workshop May 17-18 in Leicester, UK.
