About

Visageo has revolutionized how people shop. Search for and find your perfect outfit in seconds, try clothes on BEFORE you buy, save them into your closet, pose your model, take a photo and share your pics, outfits, or even entire models with your friends, and chat with them the entire time!

 We've Revolutionized E-Shopping!

Online clothes shopping is PAINFUL. Size charts are confusing, you have to shop dozens of websites to compare prices, styles & color schemes, you can't always manipulate the model the way you wish, and are rarely confident that the item will actually FIT!

However, Visageo makes shopping easier:

  • See all brands, in any combination, filtered based on your preferences and body measurements
  • Try on clothes, using your personalized 3D avatar/model anytime you want!
  • Save your selections with your avatar, in your personal VCloset, or in your WishList
  • Mix and match with saves, purchases, and wishes to make countless outfits!

We measure patterns for clothes sold by the leading designers & manufacturers, then store the data

Visageo links to hundreds of items from vendors all over the world! Each item is meticulously measured, based on pattern sizes, overall dimensions, material type, and elasticity.

Have a fully customized avatar in seconds

Enter some basic measurements (i.e. height, waist, hips, etc.). Use our custom FaceShaper to adjust your eyes, move those cheekbones down or up, and recreate your perfect smile! Say 'Hello' to the virtual YOU, with your facial characteristics and body measurements; all with incredible detail and accuracy.

Join the New Shopping Revolution!

Use your customized avatar to try on clothes; shop with CONFIDENCE - If it fits your avatar, it WILL look great on you! Try on clothes from different brands. Mix new searches with clothes previously purchased to better manage your wardrobe. Save your personal preferences to make shopping even easier (favorite brands, colors, styles, fabrics, arrangements, and even gemstones!). SHARE your avatar with friends so THEY can shop for you as well, or take a snapshot and get a second opinion on your new outfit at any time!

  • Your very own customized area, where you can browse, shop, socialize, share, and of course, enjoy the shopping experience!
  • Finding the clothes that fit is simple. If you search for clothing items, and they appear next to your avatar, then you KNOW they fit. We use our custom filtering system to show you only the clothes that fit your measurements and body type. No more wasting time searching through clothes not available in your size. You get hundreds of items that have already been matched to you! Like things baggy or supertight? You can adjust the parameters and include those in your searches as well!
  • Never leave the comfort of home, or wherever you might be. Shop without all the hassles of in-store purchasing, or the mundane catalog websites. Have FUN while you shop!
  • We make multi-brand outfits possible! Like J.Crew, Liz Claiborne, and Prada? Enjoy the mix of Lagerfeld and Levi's? You're in charge! For the first time on the web, try any combination of brands, even those exclusive to specific stores!
  • The 'Endless Wardrobe' is now possible! Try on jeans with a shirt you purchased weeks ago. Separate the items you've purchased from the items in your WishList. Create whole looks and save them for easy retrieval later. Enter the SKU or scan the barcode, and watch as the real item is instantly represented in your VCloset, then try it on your avatar later. Use Visageo while in the store to ensure you find only the items that match or complement your existing wardrobe!
  • Visageo is multi-purpose, simple, and your 'go-to' tool, whenever you decide to shop - in person or virtually!

 Brand names can increase profits wisely

  • Online shopping is increasing in popularity every year. Some brands sell as much as 40% of their stock exclusively through online mechanisms. Use Visageo and not only sell more items easily, but reach an ever-increasing customer base. Make new customer relationships, faster and simpler than ever before
  • Only 3% of online shoppers find what they're looking for, decide to purchase, AND are satisfied when they receive the item! This is because they're sifting through pages and pages of online 'catalogs', with thousands of items, constantly evaluating and wondering if the size is right. Visageo removes the reluctance, and establishes trust between brands and customers even BEFORE an item is purchased. And when a purchased item meets or exceeds expectations, overall returns decrease, and a better bottom line is realized
  • Visageo compiles verified data from customers; their buying habits, preferences, likes and dislikes. This data helps brands to better respond to CUSTOMER needs, monitor trends, and better anticipate what consumers want, WHEN they want it, and WHY they need it
  • For those brands/partners that elect to do so, Visageo can be customized to work as an application on their website, in addition to working as a listed brand in the main Visageo application. Customer avatars work in either version, which means customers can travel back and forth independently

Online clothes shoppers are struggling to find the right item, and the mainstream websites do NOT cater to their needs.

Our competitors use scanners that claim to capture measurements, but don’t even come close. Their avatars are static mannequins, with little or no personality. Visageo creates your ANIMATED avatar EXACTLY like you, because it uses YOUR measurements, not a rough approximation. Visageo doesn’t just have a few hair colors or skin colors, we have ALL colors! Our competitors use only a few facial measurements to construct an avatar, while Visageo lets YOU decide just how detailed you want to be, and when you’re all done, your face is represented perfectly. Look into the eyes of your virtual twin! Our competitors require special software, tools, even scanning booths, while Visageo just needs a few inputs, and can be used from desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

Visageo isn't just technology; it serves as your stylist and online personal shopper!

We digitize patterns and update brand data all the time, by measuring the exact patterns, cuts, and shapes, then standardizing the scale. This means that clothing size isn’t the most important factor. We’ve all experienced a brand that ‘runs big’ or ‘runs small’ while the size remains the same. No wonder shopping can sometimes be confusing! Visageo compares pattern measurements to customer body measurements - it's that simple. Our competitors make rough approximations with clothes measurements and use the brands ‘sizes’ as a way of determining fit - that is the OLD way of shopping. Visageo has begun the revolution! A revolution where all body types are given equal consideration, and where shopping can be fun again!

Who is Visageo for? Everyone of course! Men and women of all ages, body types, sizes, and shapes!

Visageo doesn't discriminate! We don't believe in concepts like 'Plus' or 'Plus-sized', 'Big-boned', or 'Extra Small'. There are just people and clothes, and Visageo helps to find the right fit for all users.

We are hard at work developing extensions to Visageo 1.0 that will include elementary school children and infants. (See 'Double-Digits' and 'Banoodle' under Stretch Goals) But we need your help to make them happen!

Our unique technology was conceived as a solution to a growing set of online shopping problems, including size discrimination. Visageo users enjoy shopping, because their experience is all about them! We don’t throw hundreds of items at the user, and make them sift through the results, hoping to find one or two pieces that meet their needs. We provide a connection between the customer and the items that meet their needs. Each user is treated with respect and a level of personalization they’ve always deserved, even though the industry failed to provide.

Not possible? Sound like a dream? Our staff specializes in 3D design, modeling, and programming, with years of experience in the gaming industry. Our custom processes, algorithms, functions and features, use leading web, modeling, and graphic software. Our team consists of experts in web and mobile applications development, as well as graphics design, and we love what we do!

A wide variety of avatars - of all body types!
A wide variety of avatars - of all body types!

The Visageo tech gives users real-time control of the avatar. Swap clothes off and on while the avatar animates. Watch as clothes morph while the user changes the body measurements. Other competing products provide limited skin and hair modifications. Visageo lets you EXACTLY match your skin tone and hair color, because we know that’s important to our users!

Other software solutions require rendering and reconstruction of 3D elements, while Visageo operates in real-time. We don’t have to render, because our custom technology uses a high-resolution avatar that adjusts with our trademark morph controls, and works on 90% of computers worldwide!

Visageo is able to scale its database to any inventory level for our vendor-partners, whether a vendor has 5 different shirt designs, or thousands.

Following a year of research and development, the Visageo application will be launched worldwide by July of 2015.

Completed:

  • Fully customizable 3D avatar, operating in real-time
  • Multi-function chat system
  • Picture (Snapshot) sharing system
  • Our exclusive Avatar-Sharing mechanism
  • Clothes Inventory system (server-side and client side)
  • Six completely immersive 3D environments, demonstrating different lighting, shadows, and collateral elements
  • Animated and static poses for the avatar to model outifts

Developing an application like Visageo is a unique challenge for all of us. We would like to share the development with you, as it is developed to help you and everyone experience a level of interaction and immersion never seen before.  

We have developed an efficient and effective technology. Now we need your assistance to take Visageo to the next level and bring this fantastic technology to you, the users. We need enough funds to:

  • Streamline clothes asset incorporation into our database, enabling us to add more brands, and turnaround the final items to the user more quickly
  • Develop extensions that users like you have suggested, including ‘Thimble’, which will allow users to actually CREATE new clothing designs and pipeline them into full production (See Stretch Goals)
  • Increase the number of brands and items to offer the widest selection of clothes to our users today and tomorrow
  • Construct other functionalities, allowing designers to show newly formulated ideas before they move to manufacturing, and assess customer interest
  • Incorporate expansive features to user profiles, including quality ratings of purchased and/or non-purchased clothes, budgeter, and deal-finders
  • Widen our beta test to include even more users like you before we launch, ensuring the highest quality for our application

In Work:

  • SKU scanner and input mechanism
  • Kinect-based measurements updater/application
  • Model-bases for elementary age children and infants
  • Dynamic facial hair additions (beards, goatees, mustaches, etc.)
  • Voice-chat with multiple channels
  • Dynamic cloth for skirts, drapes, and long coats
  • Multi-lingual tutorials and support (FR, DE, IT, ES, PL, PT, SE, JP)
  • Extensive Facial Expression system
  • VCloset upgrade and sorting methods (including Closet Sharing!)
  • More poses, animations, venues, and hair styles
  • Makeup presets with different color and style configurations (eye-shadow, eye-liner, mascara, blush, toner, lipstick and lip-liner)

Overseas IP Protection

Export.gov states, "Globalization and the rapid proliferation of technology have elevated the importance of intellectual property protection for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The intangible nature of intellectual property and the worldwide inconsistency of standard practices create challenges for U.S. businesses wishing to protect their inventions, brands, and business methods in foreign markets. The three most common vehicles for protecting intellectual property are patents, trademarks, and copyrights."

Visageo has extended some of its trademarks and copyrights into some foreign markets already, and will continue to do so as we expand globally.

Big Brands vs. Small Brands

In the past, big brands held an advantage with traditional media: bigger budgets, contracted ad agencies, out-of-this-world websites, huge giveaways and contests. In the current Social Era, even the smallest of businesses can find success and achieve spectacular rewards without breaking the bank.

Small businesses typically find it easier to respond to customer needs or issues. While large companies are bogged down by red tape, approvals, and discussion groups, a small business with a decent troubleshooting plan can respond quickly and effectively. This personal touch is gradually becoming more and more expected, especially online.

Visageo understands this unique methodology. We cater to all businesses, large and small, and help facilitate better creator-distributor-purchaser relationships.

3D Used as a Sales Mechanism

Many designers have used 3D tools for creative purposes, but few businesses have attempted to use 3D methods as a bridge for sales. It is our goal to educate people and companies on a broader use of 3D technology, its ability to employ rich interactive experiences, and appeal to a wide range of demographics through highly detailed and visually stunning scenarios. The 'Nintendo generation' has grown up, and aspects of gaming technology can be found throughout our daily lives.

A convergence of technology is also becoming more prevalent. We are experiencing a merging of devices and services; our phones are now cameras, our desktops function like a TV (and vice versa), even our watches can now send email (Thank you Apple!).

Visageo is a perfect example of this convergence. Shopping 'virtually' anytime, from anywhere, chatting with friends while saving styles, outfits, and combinations of outfits, sharing them with family and friends, and having it all shipped to your front door in just a few days! And if you think that's impressive, then wait until you see the next idea we come up with....  :-)

Risks and challenges

Risks are present with any project, especially with in-depth, complicated projects like Visageo. Unexpected errors occur with all types of software, and sometimes delays do indeed happen. However, we are currently on track, preparing for the best user interaction possible. Rest assured, we have taken significant steps to guard against setbacks and will update you on our final development progress and subsequent release.

EVERY single contributor on Kickstarter becomes an automatic Visageo 'VipeR' giving them access to product updates in various forms, including our online newsletter. We DEPEND on every interested party's feedback, critique, and suggestions, to ensure the absolute best quality software we can create.
