A virtual fitting room may help solve one of the biggest drawbacks to shopping for clothes online. Rice University students took advantage of Microsoft’s motion-sensing Kinect to create their senior design project.

Thus far, Wong and Zhang have adapted the software to show dresses and shirts, and they are working on shorts.
