Upcloud uses your computer’s webcam to evaluate your body in order to estimate your measurements, then recommend clothing that will fit you. You calibrate the service by standing in front of a camera and holding a CD (the purpose of holding the CD is because it is a consistent shape). Then you can shop across any of the sites that have integrated UPcload. Each site must first give UPcload size information about each item. The clothing is matched against your fit profile.
UPcload measures individual dimensions in a few minutes via standard webcam. The system utilizes body dimensions such as arm length, chest circumference and many more. According to them, the measurement process works easily and is followed by reliable clothing size recommendations. UPcload aims to become the benchmark and protagonist in social shopping.
