The 3D-MATIC Research Laboratory at the University of Glasgow is currently developing a dynamic 3D whole body scanner. The basic concept is to equip a studio space such that the "working volume" of the space is imaged from all directions using fixed stereo-pairs of TV cameras. The stereo-pair images, collected by the camera pairs at a frame rate of 25 Hz, are then processed using photogrammetric techniques to create a spatio-temporal 3D model of this space. Using these unique 4D data, it is now possible to study 3D shape deformations. We present some preliminary results of a study of the breathing pattern of a couple of subjects. This research investigates the accuracy of the data and how it compares with the measurement standards of the fashion industry. Finally we discuss the potential use of dynamic 3D scanners in the apparel industry.
