A smart mannequin has been developed by the researchers of Hong Kong Polytechnic University which at the first glance looks not different from the ordinary dummy but we want to tell you that it is not a plain stuff.
This mannequin has the ability to change its body shape and size as it can be elongated at the point of a fingertip on computer.
This mannequin is known as I Dummy which is expected to change the face of apparels and garments industries as they completely trust on the use of dummies for the purpose of designing and fitting multiple sizes of apparel products before the huge production.
It can replace the requirement of keeping a big number of fixed sized dummies in the stock of design malls or buying offices and factories for these purposes as the single I Dummy can transform itself in order to fit multiple sizes and dimensions whether it is Asian or Western.
We could have the opportunity to input customized measurements. The process of this robotic mannequin has come a long way as in its procedure; the researchers have collected huge anthropometric data as well as information from the literature of the American, European etc along with the data collected from the ITC’s 3D body scanner and application of the mechatronics on the platform of mannequin development.
I Dummy is unique in terms of sense that all changes are three dimensional as well as different in width. This design is suitable for all types of garments.
