Virtual dressing room takes the hassle our of trying on clothes
UniSA IT alumnus Mahendra Vellingiri (Master of Information & Communications Technology Management 2009) has invented an ingenious way to try on clothes virtually - no more changing and piles of garments on the floor. He is co-founder of Coitor, a next generation startup in Sri Lanka that developed the idea. All the customer needs to do is stand in front of Coitor’s screen to try different garments. The image is captured with motion sensors and each time the person’s photo pops up with the new garment, it gives a fair idea on how they look in it. Reported on Your Story innovations website.
