students and teachers of FIT have been testing how 3Dcopysystems‘ machine can benefit the future of fashion design and retail. BIG ALICE has a capacity of six people, while it was also featured at the institute’s annual awards gala, where fashion designers and models were able to take high-res photographs. the 3D full body scanner provides fast and accurate scanning, enabling designers to make easy adjustments to their work. its high resolution texture map makes it possible to use for application in film and video games, while it can also be used for medical purposes. the company is currently preparing to launch BIG ALICE in the US, arranging partnerships with various shopping centers and fashion shows.
