Title: (EN) System of imaging, cataloging, and overlaying feet and footwear
Abstract:
(EN) A system is provided for visually displaying foot images and overlaying of an image of selected footwear which includes a visual display (122) for displaying a measured foot image and an image of a selected footwear as well as an input device (126) for causing relative movement between the image of the selected footwear and the measured foot image to electronically determine the fit of the selected footwear with the measured foot. The system may include a foot measuring device (134) for measuring the foot and producing an image of the foot on the visual display (122) and a footwear database for providing selected footwear data to the visual display (122). In addition, an integrated system is provided for footwear visual image cataloging and selection which includes a foot measuring device (134) for electronically measuring a customer's foot, a data processing device (120) for receiving foot measurement data, customer identification data and customer preference data, a storage device (170) for storing a footwear catalog comprising footwear images and footwear related data, and a visual display (122) for displaying images and data related to the measured foot, suggested footwear images and suggested footwear related data stored in the footwear catalog wherein the suggested footwear images and footwear related data are automatically selected by matching the customer preference data and foot measurement data to footwear related data in the footwear catalog.
