ZOZO, which runs the fashion e-commerce website "ZOZOTOWN", has announced a bodysuit for 3D measurement, "ZOZOSUIT 2".

The former ZOZOSUIT was a system to generate a 3D model of the person wearing the suit by taking 360-degree photos of the dot markers on the entire bodysuit with a smartphone camera.

ZOZOSUIT 2 has the same basic measurement method, but the number of markers has increased to an average of 20,000, about 50 times more than the old ZOZOSUIT, and the size of the markers that can be recognized by the camera has been changed from 2 mm to 6 mm.

It also introduces technology to compensate for body movement during filming and to use contour information to finalize the 3D data. The company claims that these technologies have made it possible to generate more detailed 3D models.

More than a million body shape data obtained from the former ZOZOSUIT is being used in a service that allows users to find products that fit their own body shape by simply entering their height and weight.

The general distribution of ZOZOSUIT 2 is undecided at the moment, but ZOZO is looking for partner companies to create new services that utilize ZOZOSUIT 2.
