KINECT AUGMENTED FITTING ROOM

Ever want to try on clothes without the hassle of getting dressed and undressed? An augmented reality dressing room, outfitted with Microsoft's Kinect motion-sensor for Xbox, may solve this problem for you.

Fashion retailer Topshop installed a Kinect-powered virtual fitting room at its Moscow store from May 5-8.

Created by AR Door, the Augmented Fitting Room system overlays 3D augmented reality clothes on the customer. Simple gestures and on-screen buttons let users "try on" different outfits.

It's not a perfect system. The on-screen clothes often drop out of alignment with the user, and there don't appear to be any sizing tools. Regardless, it's a pretty cool new tool that could be a glimpse at a living room shopping system of the future. Check it out in the video below:
