I snagged these Stella McCartney sunglasses on the new-to-me online eyewear wonderland, DITTO. Amidst a burgeoning market of online eyewear sites, the virtual try-on technology at DITTO legitimately knocked my socks off (or… sunglasses, rather). When you first peruse the site, you’re able to record a multi-angle video of your face using your own webcam (most of you have one built in and ready to go) and immediately you’re able to see each pair of sunglasses and/or glasses on your. own. face.
Now, this whole “see what it looks like on you!” thing may not be news to everyone, but unlike other eyewear sites I’ve tried, DITTO’s technology not only gets the size of your face right, but also allows you to swivel your head back and forth creating a three-dimensional view of how the sunglasses (or glasses) will look on your face from every angle. Thus, you really get a true picture of how the glasses will appear in real life. You’ve gotta try it, it’s actually amazing. If you’re in the market for new glasses or sunglasses, or if you’re just super bored and want to see their awesome technology/user interface in action — head over to DITTO and check out their impressive array of all your favorite eyewear brands.
