Oh thrifty fashion loving mums this is just perfect for you !
Let me introduce you to this amazing low cost personal body scanner that’s just launched on Kickstarter.
It aims to change the way people buy clothes online – ensuring they can always get the right size. It’s perfect for mums with little time but still want to look good, those who want to order online but have neither the time or energy to keep sending items back and forth.
What an outstanding idea..so useful and I just love the fact it is so cheap too.
The personal scanner has been developed by a team of scientists in Switzerland, who drew on infra-red scanners and body scanning technology used for medical purposes. The scanner is able give 34 precise measurements needed for perfectly fitting clothes. It is super simple to use too. You just plug it into a computer, stand in front of the camera and turn yourself around as directed and hey presto! -measurements are provided within moments.
Longer term the developers are wanting to work with brands to collect their size information into a central database. This would allow customers to scan themselves with the device and get immediate advice as to which size would be the best fit for their favourite designers and brands.
The scanner has endorsed by fashion designer Angela Missoni who has said,
“the possibility to simply and rapidly capture one’s measurements has the potential to revolutionise the way we conceive of and participate in e-commerce,” .
I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these. It really will make online shopping so much easier.
