AR takes online shopping to the next level

An Augmented Reality app might soon bring us one step closer to online shopping that doesn’t result in as many returns. The app, which is a collaboration between GAP, Google and Avametrics and will launch later this month, is simple: You just choose one of five different body types, then fill in your measurements like bust, weight and height. Based on that information the app creates an avatar that you can use to try on different items. This way you can compare easily between sizes and see the way the fabrics drapes and stretches.
Of course you can also twist the avatar around, so you can see what it looks like in the back and from the sides as well. Judging by the demonstration video it dosen’t take into consideration variations in how narrow shoulders you have, or the actual length of your legs or arms, which of course aren’t the same in every individual of the same height and weight. But still, it offers a much greater possibility to avoid sartorial disappointments. Curious? See for yourself in this demo video.
