The rising popularity of online shopping has brought about concerns regarding customer service enhancements that can be made digitally to ensure consumers get what they want -- in the world of footwear, this foot shape scanner could serve as a solution to that problem.

Users simply step onto the scanner from the Volumental start-up as they would a regular weighted scale. The device uses Intel's RealSense Camera technology to obtain foot measurements that go beyond the user's size; this includes: arch, width, heel placement and more. This foot care scanner offers users a customized structural analysis, which can then be given to online stores to ensure the consumer is ordering a product they won't regret.

This device could combat the current online return rate, which stands at 50%.
