Multimedia Project: Fashion Shop Group Members:Dale Barbee Subathra Dhinakar Robin Roberts Walton Dell Dale Thompson
Project Goals • Enhance Shopping Experience for Buying Clothes Online • Duplicate Real World Advantages as Much as Possible • Provide Computerized Features not Possible in the Real World
Real World Advantages • Real look of clothing not just flat image. • See if two items would go together well by looking at them side-by-side (or trying them on). • See clothes from any angle (and stereoscopically). • Social Interaction.
Online Advantages • Searching for clothing is done quickly. • You don’t have to wear clothes to shop for them. :-) • No lines at checkout! • Product is delivered to your doorstep.
Competitive Analysis • www.LandsEnd.com (virtual model) • www.StyleClick.com (3D virtual model)
Part one of the Project Build a virtual model to match yourself: • Choose a model’s face, or... • Upload a picture of your face, or... • Use web camera to take your picture. • Choose hair color, skin color. • Choose model dimensions.
Part two of the Project Search clothing database: • Choose by season (summer, winter, etc.) • Choose by style (casual, formal, etc.) • Choose by type (shirt, blouse, skirt, pants, etc.)
Part three of the Project Choose a top and bottom piece from search results: Notice the fake fabric!
Team Experiences • Lack of expertise in MFC applications by all team members makes the work more difficult. • Since MFC is new to all of us, the implementation of image matching using histogram is still in development. • There was only enough time to implement a few things, so many ideas had to remain just ideas. • Since there was no time to learn anything new, work was allocated based on who knows what.
