Fitle gives users a 3D avatar of themselves for virtually trying on clothes

• http://www.gizmag.com, By Stu Robarts

A number of technologies have already been created aimed at helping people to judge the look at fit of clothes when shopping online. Fits.me is a solution developed for online retailers that allows people to input their measurements and dress a virtual mannequin to gauge clothing fit. Verisize, meanwhile, provides users with size equivalents across clothing brands.

While these tools can be useful, Fitle says that it can create a 3D avatar of an individual that not only looks like them, but that is morphologically exact. Indeed, it claims to provide a 99 percent accurate representation of the user.

Fitle avatars are created using the height measurement of a user and four photos of them. An algorithm is used to extract more than 50 parameters based on how a user looks, while another is used to create a 3D reconstruction of the user. Fitle says the end results are photo-realistic.
