Product Desc: LoveThatFit
LoveThatFit’s ‘Fit’ technology offers users the most realistic shopping experience from start to finish. To create an account, all the user needs to do is enter measurements and upload a full body image of themselves and then start shopping. The user can mix and match outfits, compare outfits side-by-side, get recommendations, shop with friends and family, and see how the clothes are actually going to look and fit on their own body prior to buying. Our technology is also smart. The more the user uses the LTF tool the better recommendations LTF will give, offering the user a superior online shopping experience.
Beyond being a ‘Fit’ tool for consumers, LoveThatFit has broader potential applications for the entire Fashion Industry. LTF will shorten the production process for developing a product line which is currently 52 weeks from start to finish. LTF collects data that will help the retailer become more efficient, increase sales and understand its customer better. Also, LTF will offer designers a way to increase their market reach and productivity.

Product Desc: Alohar Ambient Intelligence
The Alohar Mobile Ambient Analytics Platform enables ambient location apps. In other words, it efficiently collects location and other mobile sensor data and quickly analyzes it to understand a smartphone user’s behavior. It achieves this while using the minimal amount of battery necessary on the mobile device. The platform is composed of a smartphone client SDK (software development kit) for Android and iPhone and several cloud-based services. The platform uses mobile location, motion, direction, Wi-Fi and timing data, and our patent-pending PlaceRanking system to learn about the mobile user in real time and over time. Therefore it provides more advanced functionality than a conventional mobile LBS (location based services) platform.
