New App The Mall Uses Kinect for Home Fitting Room
Dec 08, 2015
Fashion-loving gamers (or just non-gamers who are wondering what their partner's Xbox is there for) can now rejoice: it's possible to buy -- and try on -- clothes via a virtual mall on Xbox One. The Mall app, developed by Dublin-based TV and e-commerce firm Von Bismarck, uses the Kinect motion sensor to let you try on the clothes virtually in the comfort of your living room, and you can then pay for them using another app, PowaTag.
The Mall app is currently available just for U.S Xbox One users but will expand to the UK and Canada in February 2016. Some of the first brands available include SoccerPro, Style PB, Grayers and Go2Games.
