FitBot is the leading virtual fitting room technology. It helps customers buy the right size, increase the confidence in online purchase, and increase the sales for a retailer.
As most garment returns are due to wrong size received, it helps reduce the retailer’s costs by reducing returns. FitBot is essential customer service, increasing the customer satisfaction. It helps build the brand value.
A robotic mannequin that takes your body measurements and mimics your shape, so that you can see exactly how clothing would fit you, online. Fitbot has already shown promising results for clients: One German test-run showed that the robots increased sales 300%, while reducing returns 28%.
The shape-shifting robot mannequin, previously only available with a male physique, now comes in female form too. Score one for robot gender equality.
The robot is part of a virtual fitting room service for online retailers created by Estonian start-up Fits.me. Customers shopping for clothes at a participating site enter their measurements online (height, chest, arm length, torso, and so on), then see photos of a real-life mannequin shaped just like them (only headless) "trying on" items in various sizes and styles.
To be clear, shoppers are not watching the robot try on clothes in real time. When a retailer signs up for the service, Fits.me snaps pictures of the bot trying on the garb in the shop's inventory and stores those photos in an online database that shoppers access later.
The FitBot aims to tackle online fashion retail's biggest hurdles--the lack of a fitting room and resulting hassle of having to return ill-fitting clothes. Instead of just eyeballing clothes online and guessing which size would work best, shoppers can get a more accurate sense of whether a garment will look fab or get them nominated for "What Not to Wear."
Created using scientific algorithms based on 3D human body scans, the female FitBot robot was more complex to model than its male counterpart due to female shape and size variations, Fits.me said. It adds that the female FitBot can adjust to hundreds of thousands of female body shapes--or 85 percent of woman who shop online today.
The female FitBot mannequin will do her thing at British retailer Hawes & Curtis, where the male FitBot mannequin is already expanding and contracting its metallic frame and has helped H&C increase sales to new customers by 57 percent, according to the company.
Estonian start-up company Fits.me is doing its part to make online clothes shopping easier on consumers and retailers alike. Their robotic mannequin can adjust into just about any male body measurements imaginable, giving potential buyers a real-world glimpse into how a garment will fit their specific bodies. Sadly, you can’t watch the robot shape-shift into your precise measurements. The Fits.me team simple places a retailer’s clothing on the mannequin and sends the ‘bot through its cycle of 2000 known body shapes. Then later, when you are shopping on that retailer’s website, you type in your measurements and the clothing styles you look at will bring up pics of how you would look in those threads.
Unlike dressmaker’s dummies that can only move in a couple of places, this bot can shift and change just about every part of its “body.” It’s not surprising that a female version is taking a while to build, given the female form’s higher amount of variable measurements. But once shoppers are able to virtually try clothes on before they buy, online apparel sales are bound to take a huge jump. In a recent test run, online clothing sales increased by 300% while returns decreased 28%. As far as online clothing retailers are concerned, this mannequin-bot is the greatest thing since expiring gift cards.
