The 'mPort' is a revolutionary body scanner that can help consumers find the right-sized clothing. In recent years, many companies have been experimenting with interactive mirrors and virtual dressing rooms. Now there is a new device that may radically change the way we shop for clothes.
The mPort is a full body scanner that is set to launch in a number of malls across Australia. To use the device, users must first enter basic information such as their age and gender. The person then steps inside the mPort and the machine begins calculating their height, weight and other measurements. After the machine has finished scanning, it will present the shopper with a list of garments that match his or her measurements.
In addition to retail applications, the machine can also double as a health tracker to calculate information such as fat content, BMI and waist-to-hip ratio.
