Mobile mirror shopping assistant
The original design brief was:
Some people find it extremely difficult to imagine how they might look in an item of clothing on the rails of a clothing store. We are looking for a solution that allows users to visualise themselves in particular garments and combinations thereof without the effort of multiple visits to the changing room - this visualisation will appear on their mobile phone, like an electronic Barbie doll. There are several elements to this project:
- acquisition suitable image of user
- identification of the product (bar code reader?)
- acquisition of garment image (from server side catalogue?)
- generation of combined person/garment image and display on phone
We would expect that the processing for this would be partially server based.
