Creating Hyper Real Digital Versions of YOU

Ed Clinkett has developed an amazing ‘Immersive Reality Platform’ which he describes as:

"Beyond just data and exploring the real world applications of your digital twin in a post-Covid world HyModa offers digital solutions, including a platform and mobile app that may well transform the way we shop. Customers can create their very own body-mapped 3D digital avatar and virtual changing rooms to try digital garments in their size."

Clearly, there is a big plus for the fashion industry but Ed will discuss other applications as well. Join The Leaders Club's event and find out more.
