Mobile men's tailor truck comes to you

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

If you need a tailor-made suit you don't have to go all the way to Midtown or Wall Street. That is because Carlos Solorio of Arden Reed Custom Suiting will come to you. Inside his tailor truck, they can custom fit a man for a fine men's suit in just 15 minutes.

Men select their material from 200 wool fabric swatches. There are a few shirt examples on hand or swatches of those as well.

So it works just like any fine men's clothier -- almost. The difference being the tailor truck uses a 3D body scanner to take a man's measurements. To get the best accuracy, men have to be in their skivvies.

14 sensors at 6 different angles and at 7 varying heights transmit the readings to the computer.

The measurements are sent to shanghai, where the suits are put together and sent back in 4 to 6 weeks to eagerly waiting customers.

    You've probably seen Airbnb commercials extolling the benefits of homeowners renting out their houses or apartments to out-of-town guests for a fee. Sharing is caring feel-good commercials.But housing activists say Airbnb is reducing available housing in New York City's increasingly expensive and shrinking housing market.

    A life-sized looking and sounding robot named the RoboThespian is an interactive, alert machine powered by algorithms and codes -- a form of artificial intelligence. It's the sort of thing that would have sounded like science fiction a generation ago. These days, robots like this are used mostly in showrooms and for entertainment. But researcher Cadell Last of the Global Brain Institute says that these bots will have a much bigger role and will make up a major part of the workforce.
