3D Body Scanner and 3D Software


This is the NX-16, a dressing-room size scanner (Image source: tc2.com)

One of the big barriers to broader take-up for online fashion shopping is the problem of correct fit. But we are now seeing early commercial products that will address this problem. The TC2 3D body scanner is one possible solution - it is a 3D scanner that "scans the whole human body in less than 6 seconds and produces a true-to-scale 3D body model within minutes". More details over at TC2.

Interesting stuff!

I am a student from Hong Kong, I am interested in this topic. Here I have an idea want to share
I think that high-end technology can also be apply to any kind of items as well.For example, when we are shopping online, some products only display low quality and less pictures, but we cannot really see the whole thing clearly. I hope that if the "Body Scanner" create the simulate product to online shop, and then allow online customers to Rotate, scale or Move, rather than just display some still pictures. That would be help global customers to see products more clearly.

Yes, 3D Body scanning is revolutionizing the on-line shopping experience. Intellifit is now offering custom made jeans through Custom Apparel Centers (http://www.it-fits.info/CustomApparelCenter.asp.
