Passengers fitted to the T
Passengers at the Philadelphia Airport will soon be able to kill time by stepping into the Virtual Fitting Room to see if their intended purchases fit them to a T (pun not intended) before busting out that credit card. This is a free service made available to all passengers, and it definitely goes a long way in helping online shoppers get the perfect fit without even shedding a single piece of clothing in the process. All the passenger needs to do is stand fully clothed in the middle of the Virtual Fitting Room for approximately 10 seconds and let the “antenna wand” pass around him/her. This wand will subsequently collect more than 200,000 data points which are subsequently matched against measurements of brand name clothing in the company’s database.
The moment you step out of the machine, you will be able to begin your shopping spree without fear or worry that the arrived package will be one size too small or too big, unless you actually binged on some fatty foods before it arrives. The Virtual Fitting Room is completely safe for use and won’t let you grow an extra arm or leg with frequent use, since it consumes a mere 1/350th power of a cellphone signal.
The Virtual Fitting Room was developed by a company called Intellifit, and it measures 7 feet in diameter and 8 feet in height. The patented “FitPrint” technology used in each VFR is capable of matching brands from the following clothing lines: Nordstrom, Levi’s, Lands’ End, GAP, Nautica, Dockers and Jos. A. Bank.
