There was an interesting use of Intel's Realsense 3D technology displayed at IDF by a company called Volumental. By using a new product with the new style of camera it would be possible to make a 3D map of your body accurate enough to make clothing patterns from. The example offered were a pair shoes that could be ordered online with no concerns about the fit as the shoes would be perfect for you. That is just the beginning though, you would also be able to order a perfectly tailored suit online without ever needing to appear in person for a fitting. It could also lead to an even worse Fappening in the future; choose your online clothing supplier carefully. There is more here at The Inquirer.
"The proof of concept software, called Volume Voice[sic], accurately scans parts of the human body with Intel's Realsense 3D depth cameras, which will soon feature on Intel-powered laptops and tablets. Volumental's cloud-based platform will then allow individuals to create products that are tailored to their own bodies, for example, shoes that fit perfectly without the need to try them on before buying."
