Isetan is a Japanese department store that's looking to the future of service by offering a unique new shoe fitting service.

At the store in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, Japan, consumers are able to step onto a Flickfit 3D scanner, which will take accurate measurements of their feet in the span of just five seconds. From there, this data is shared to a tablet app, which makes it possible for a sales associate to bring up an interactive menu that makes footwear recommendations. These styles can be previewed in 360 degrees with a touch to the screen of the tablet device.

Isetan is a forward-thinking department store that's embracing several virtual technologies of this kind as sales tools. The store also features a sake-tasting counter with artificial intelligence and skin analysis stations.
