Abstract

Disclosed is a method for virtual coordination covering multiple on-line shopping systems. It aims at providing means for evaluating commodities from multiple shopping systems using virtual reality technology. A typical instance of this method is a virtual fitting system where a user can try to fit on clothes, shoes, and/or accessories from different shopping systems at once (on a single model). It can also be used for coordination of any kind of goods including electric equipment, furniture, etc. In the case of coordination for electric equipment and/or furniture, a model of room will be used instead of human model. Fig.-1 is a typical configuration of virtual coordination system. Generate virual fitting image Select com m odities (put in a cart) Purchase com m odities
