Kinect Now Lets You Try on Clothes at Home
The future is now.
A new Xbox One app called The Mall lets users virtually try on clothes at home with Kinect. The app is available for free on Xbox One right now (via Engadget), and you can watch a preview below to see how it works from Windows Central. Basically, you stand in front of the Kinect camera and it fits a piece of clothing to your body.
Some of the supported brands available in the store today include SoccerPro, Style PB, Grayers, and Go2Games. More brands are slated to come later down the road.
After you've "tried on" a piece of clothing (multiple people can try on clothing at once), you can then complete your purchase using the PowaTag app. This stores your credit card payment info, so you don't have to enter it using the Xbox controller. The Xbox One app is available only in the United States for now.
GameSpot tried The Mall app today and found that it's not perfect. Not every item in the store was available to virtually try on. In addition, we encountered some other functionality bugs. And while you can "try on" clothing, you of course don't know how the material feels on your skin or any other subtleties.
But it's a cool concept all the same. What do you think of virtually trying on clothes? Let us know in the comments below!
