WeStyle

The project began July 2011 and is ongoing.

WeStyle is a magic mirror device that helps customers of a clothing store to try out different textile patterns on their clothing and accessories by augmenting the mirrored image with computer graphics. WeStyle is used via natural gestures, which enables each customer to quickly find the textile pattern that best suits her style, while allowing playful experimentation with different colors and patterns. The invisible computing scheme of WeStyle is based on the use of Microsoft Kinect, and all the technological components (depth sensor, camera, computer, and cables) will be hidden from the customer’s view.
