  1. I heard that in the future a laser beam will take a person’s
    measurements, transmit it to a location elimininating the old
    way of small, medium, large, etc.etc…??

  2. hi Antonio,
    you are right, there are some companies working on this. H&M has introduced the virtual fitting room last year where the customer can create and avatar according the sex, age and BMI and dress with the clothing on offer to see how it will look on oneself.
    Theoretically it would then be possible to order via the virtual fitting room the clothing item which is then custom made but this function is not working yet.

    I haven’t found a real laser measurement with ordering but there are some patent application describing exactly what you mentioned. Guess this will take some time before it hits the clothing stores.
