A 3D foot scanner aimed at assisting consumers when shopping for footwear was unveiled on Thursday, November 22, 2018 in Guangdong.
This device is specially designed to take all measurements of the feet.
A person has to stand on a platform for the scanner to collect data on both feet in 360 degrees, after which the user can see a digital model of their feet and obtain a report on their shape and size.
With the data, Alibaba can recommend the footwear suitable for the user and reduce the shopping risk caused by inappropriate style or wrong size. (Photos: IC)
