HP is making a big push into 3D technology and the latest push has come out this week!
HP this week launched FitStation, an innovative hardware and software platform that captures 3D scans of the foot, foot pressure measurements and gait analysis to create a one-of-a-kind digital profile of each foot. HP actually deploys various 3D scanning technologies including laser, structured light and photogrammetry for its various 3D scanner products to cater for different applications.
It is the world's first end-to-end solution that provides individual off-the-shelf shoe and insole recommendations, 3D printed insoles and individualized custom footwear. The system will use HP Multi Jet Fusion printing technology to manufacture a 3D printed insole.
“FitStation is a truly disruptive platform that will improve people’s lives and change the way people purchase footwear and shoe insoles,” said Louis Kim, Global Head of Immersive Computing, Personal Systems, HP Inc. “We are reinventing the footwear shopping experience, bringing a level of customization and personalization never before seen. We are stitching HP’s capabilities in 3D scanning and 3D printing to bring this Blended Reality vision to life and are working with leading partners within the footwear industry to develop this revolutionary platform.”
The FitStation platform is due to be piloted in a select number of Superfeet stores.
