Amazon rumored to have acquired Shoefitr footwear 3D scanning company - 3ders.org

Shoefitr is a startup from CMU that went through Alphalab accelerator that 3d scan the interior of shoes to aid in online purchases.

The company uses 3D scanners to to scan the interior of shoes - they have a very large database of many shoes and shoe styles - and the scan data is then used to determine the fit of a future pair of shoes based on an online customer’s fit data.  For example, if somebody wanted to purchase a new pair of dress shoes they could input their shoe data from the pair of running shoes that they were currently wearing and the Shoefitr engine will automatically pair them up with the proper-sized shoe regardless of pre-existing size, country or origin or brand (all of which can be factors that affect the final fit of a shoe).
