Company Summary

DITTO.com is an online retailer with 3D virtual fitting technology initially focused on the $22B U.S. eyewear market. DITTO uses proprietary patent-pending technology to let customers create a “DITTO”, a video of their face from their webcam to virtually try on glasses to see if they actually fit before they buy them. Customers can share their DITTO with friends to help them decide or ask a trained stylist for a personalized recommendation.
