About this project

Does it fit? 

No one knows; particularly if you are shopping for clothes online. That’s because clothing sizes are ambiguous – different brands have different sizes; different regions have different sizes. In fact, 1 in 5 garments purchased online are returned because of this. This is a BIG problem for shoppers and retailers.

The Qoture App extracts your measurements from photographs using a standard camera. This imaging technology is inspired by the Terminator.

Measure up in 3 easy steps: 

Step 1. Enter height     

Step 2.  Front photo     

Step 3. Side photo 

The result: Your Suggested Retail Fit [SRF] according to the brand’s sizing charts. This is the perfect app for online purchases and gifts. 

No more guessing. No more unwanted returns.

Size Matters (but not the number on the label)

Imagine if we could eliminate the stigma of vanity sizing. It is caused by mass production and it’s old fashion. The perfect fit is a custom fit. Trouble is, custom clothing is expensive. With our technology, we mass customize clothing by obtaining measurements quickly, easily & remotely.

Use of Funds

• Realistic Morphs. To transform 2D photographs into a realistic 3D model, we need more anthropometric data. We could gather thousands of test subjects, but rather than reinvent the wheel, we would use the CEASAR. The larger the population sample size, the greater our accuracy.

• App Development. We have technical & business talents but we’re missing an App Developer. This will enable us to share our technology with you.
