Maybe taking selfies actually has some benefit after all. The new ThirdLove application uses image recognition algorithms to analyze a women’s body size and recommend the perfect bra size.
From their FAQ:
Our patented technology uses two photos in conjunction with computer vision/image recognition algorithms to understand the size of your body in relation to the iPhone and map your shape.
The app doesn’t end there either as it will also serve up products and model images of products that actually fit you.
Just let that sink in for a moment. The application actually sizes you up and recommends products that will fit you. You no longer have to buy something to try it on and then ship it back to the company before you can get a proper size.
We really are living in the future.
