SPESA EXPO will feature an all new COOL ZONE v2.0 presented by [TC]². This special 6000 square foot exhibit will highlight current and future technologies that support a totally digital fashion and sewn products lifecycle and supply chain. The following is a summary of vendors and exhibits that will be part of the Cool Zone, Booth 5749.

[TC]²
[TC]² demo stations will be networked with two NX-16 3D body scanners to show automatic body measurement and high resolution avatar creation (including face texturing from photo) from the body scan. This output will then be used live in virtual fashion, animation, weight-loss visualization, and other applications on large screen displays. An avatar engine (on the web) will demonstrate similar functionalities using measurement input instead of a body scan. Virtual Fashion applications will also be shown on Web enabled smart phones. One of the virtual fashion visualizations will be for custom jeans and will show various jean styles on a personal avatar, with links to online providers for ordering custom jeans from 3D body scans. [TC]²'s VDresser solution will be highlighted as a low-cost tool to implement 3D garment content for virtual fashion applications.

SizeUSA
[TC]²'s comprehensive sizing study of the U.S. population provides current measurements on sizing and shapes of today's adult consumer. The SizeUSA survey includes body measurement data on over 10,000 men and women, ages 18 to 65+. [TC]² will demonstrate the use of SizeUSA data as a resource for analysis of existing size ranges and development of size guidelines for new products and markets. This demonstration will also highlight the analysis of body shape characteristics through the generation and comparison of avatars that represent key body measurements for graded size ranges.

Digital Printing
In the Cool Zone, [TC]² will be creating bags which will be printed utilizing pigment based nanocolorant inks, heat set with AIT's 7300 rotary heat transfer machine, then cut using Gerber's single-ply DCS 3600 cutting system, and sewn on the show floor using Schmetz needles and A&E thread.
