Kinect used as Topshop dressing room

So far, most of the awesome Kinect hacks we’ve been seeing have been designed simply for fun, a bit of mucking around and seeing what the hardware is capable of.

Indeed. However i still don't understand why things like this are only now happening via kinect hacks when the tech has been around for years.

It would be cheaper just to have people try the clothes on themselves.

stuff like this attracts people to their stores, the dressing rooms are the place people steal the clothes the most, no dressing rooms means one or two less employees the company has to hire and it also cuts down on messy stores and dressing rooms.

All that aside, a computer image of yourself in clothing isn't an accurate depiction of what you actually look like when trying on the items for real.

true though, but u know there are a lot of people who are shopping online. All of them just have pictures of some model in it. This would be somewhat a better representation of your self in those clothing right?

But it does make them look somewhat fat in that video.

This article makes me wonder if anyone actually adopted the tech for non-gaming applications after MS's preening last year.
