Over the last four years Bold Metrics has developed one of the most advanced machine learning technologies for predicting the human body. After using the solution on their own apparel eCommerce store, Bold Metrics began licensing their technology. Bold Metrics offers three solutions; Fashion Metric for apparel design and size predictions, Sport Metric to aid consumers in buying sporting goods relative to their body shape, and VR Metric for generating authentic avatars.
Custom clothiers around the world use Fashion Metric to predict body measurements at a high degree of accuracy. In 2015 Fashion Metric expanded its reach into the ready-to-wear space, and now powers some of the world's largest retailers and brands behind-the-scenes in their white-labeled fitting solutions.
Sport Metric leverages the Bold Metrics prediction technology to make it easier than ever before to purchase sporting goods online. Buying the right size bike, skis, or golf clubs online all require detailed body measurements that most consumers don't know without getting measured in-person. With Sport Metric, a shoppers measurements are predicted at a higher level of accuracy than if they measured themselves, taking the friction out of the online shopping process.
VR Metric, the newest solution from Bold Metrics allows for an entirely new way to generate realistic avatars in VR. From social to shopping, having a true-to-life avatar is becoming increasingly important to users, many of whom don't have the background to build sophisticated 3D human models for VR or AR applications.
