Virtual Shoe Fitting via Kinect

German Agency Kempertrautmann has developed a system for Görtz, in order for consumers to try on shoes virtually. The new shopping experience utilizes three Microsoft Kinect sensors and detects the users perfect shoe size. A similar Kinect hack has been done in the past but with shoes. The main difference here is that the virtual shoe store has actually been used to promote sales in Germany.

This could start a trend of virtual stores within malls. People already shop online for products, going to a mall and not finding exactly what you want might not be an issue if these type of Kinect stores open up.
