Toshiba Corporation and Digital Fashion Ltd., a Japan based developer of software for the fashion industry, announced to create a 3-dimensional fashion simulation system that will allow virtual modeling and coordination of clothes, cosmetics and accessories in real time.
The system will capture images of people, outfit them in the virtual clothes of their choice, and then display naturalistic images in real time, including movement of the person and the clothes.
While current modeling and fitting systems present static, two-dimensional images of people trying on clothes, the new simulation system will offer 3D images in which movement in front of a display equipped with cameras is reproduced in real time, along with the textures, shades and real appearance of the chosen material and clothing. Using the simulation system will offer the same sense of reality as a real mirror.
Availability of the system is expected in 2006. (Toshiba Press-Release)
