Video: the future of shopping (KinectShop)

This is what happens when you connect MSFT’s Kinect platform with shopping. Via FastCompany:  “A new augmented reality shopping platform for Xbox Kinect will allow users to try on clothes in true 3-D, share photos with friends, and store wish-listed items on smartphones for shopping on-the-go… “The customer can visually see what an object looks like on them without even entering a retail store,” Steve Dawson, Technology Director for the Emerging Experiences group at Razorfish tells Fast Company. Unlike existing virtual shopping that shoehorns 2-D photos on top of body snapshots, “with Kinect, you can find the physical outlines of a person and map it to your body.”
