Student design project carried out for Clifford Dive at Qualcomm.

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.
