When Charles Nouboue was in business school, he found he had little time to shop during regular store hours. But shopping online proved to be hard. “It’s difficult to find exactly what you want to buy,” Nouboue said. “It’s very complicated to find the right size.” That’s why he and his partner, Gaetan Rougevin-Baville, recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund Fitle, a virtual fitting room that allows you to try clothes on a customized 3D avatar of yourself. The pair’s goal is to raise $50,000 by this Saturday, and as of Monday, they had already passed the $40,000 mark.

In 30 seconds, Fitle creates a customized 3D avatar that its founders say is accurate 99 percent of the time. Nouboue and Rougevin-Baville are currently developing technology that will allow them to render the merchandise from partner brands in 3D based on dimensions and size.
