Where 3D scanning was once something relegated to the field of science, now it has expanded to a somewhat unlikely realm: the fashion world.
Clothing company Fitted Fashion is the most recent in a series of businesses implementing the use of full-body scanners to take hundreds of measurements of individuals in a matter of minutes. Those measurements are then stored and used in the creation of clothing, such as custom-made jeans for women.
In the future, there is also the potential to have those measurements sent to other retailers, including those online, which could further change the way people shop for clothing.

Additionally, this technology has the potential to extend beyond designer jeans. In fact, it can be used to create custom anything – whether it’s suits, shirts, or shoes. The only limitation seems to be one’s imagination.
