Zeekit, or “chameleon” in Hebrew, is revolutionizing the way people browse, share and shop from their mobile devices through the most advanced virtual fitting room app for consumers and retailers. By using proprietary technology first developed in the Israeli Air Force, Zeekit creates a mobile image that shows how an item will look and fit on a consumer’s actual body, without having to try it on. Retailers and brands easily incorporate the Zeekit button in their online, mobile and physical stores to give shoppers the ability to virtually try on their entire catalog of products. Shoppers tap on the Zeekit button next to an item and instantly see an image of themselves realistically wearing the item.
