Topshop gets Kinect-powered AR fitting room

Augmented reality, Kinect, Tech Digest news

Fashionistas are now able to walk the tech catwalk in Moscow’s flagship Topshop clothes store thanks to a newly installed, Kinect-powered AR fitting room.

Using the Xbox 360 motion sensing peripheral and some custom software, customers merely need to step up in front of the “mirror” to have items of clothing overlaid onto what they’re wearing. A few measured swipes of the hand and they’re trying on plenty of the store’s catalogue without fumbling around for hangers and pulling clothes on and off.

While the super-imposed 3D clothing models aren’t quite a perfect fit, it’s an excellent use of the technology that will surely become commonplace in the years to come once the software has been refined.

Check it out in action in the video above.

  • That was a nice touch of graphic design. It inspires me to do more and give more on my graphic design course.

  • Cool Concept…But for me, it’s nicer to have an actual fitting of the dress….to see if it’s comfortable to wear and not just the way I look.
