<AR CostumesDisney researchers have developed AR costumes that automatically augment a watertight digital costume onto a person’s body from a monocular RGB image. When the digital costume is overlayed onto a body using pose matching, several parts of the person’s clothes or skin remain visible due to differences in shape and proportions. They tout it as the “first to deliver plausible watertight costumes from RGB imagery only, and is compatible with mobile devices.”

< Disney Research is working to greatly improve their current method of being able to try on augmented reality costumes with more powerful pose and shape estimation. The eventual goal is that one day the program will be able to augmented costumes with exaggerated proportions and even operate in real-time, possibly for actual productions.
