MIRRARME
MIRRARME is 3D/AR virtual try-on platform designed for fashion retailers Showcase your entire collection in 3D and let your clients virtually try-on, with a mirror model of themselves

MIRRARME, a virtual try-on service that allows customers to see themselves in the latest fashion from online retailers.

Firstly we convert a retailers clothing into 3D, via a process called photogrammetry. Retailers simply send us images of their clothing, which we covert with our AI into a 3D model. With this tech, we are able to remove the mannequin or models from the images to leave a perfect 3D mirror of the clothing.

Secondly, via our app, we create a 3D mirror model of the client from a single headshot and a couple of measurements. Within 45 seconds, the client has a mirror model of themselves with the added benefit of calculating the best fit, based on the fashion retailers sizing guidelines.

Finally, the client selects the 3D clothing from the online store and the MIRRARME app opens to show both the client and clothing in 3D. We then take it a step further with AR for a full 360 view, where the client can walk around the mirror model of themselves and see the clothing from every angle. Providing a personalized shopping experience.

Whilst no one can fully replicate the in-store try-on experience, MIRRARME goes pretty close.

Bandicoot
Bandicoot is helping the fashion industry show how fabrics and materials really look online.

Fashion retailers can provide a rich online experience of the colour, texture and gloss of their materials by adding Bandicoot Shimmer Views to their website. Viewers can see how the light plays on the material as they tilt their phone or move their mouse.
This new technology increases online engagement and conversions, and reduces online returns. A Shimmer View can be created quickly by taking photos using a handheld camera.
Bandicoot can also create digital fabric twins for use in 3D garment design to lower physical sampling costs, reduce waste and bring new designs into the market more quickly.
