Actual Size

One of the downsides of shopping online is that it’s hard to know product size dimensions.  Some retailers place a coin next to product image so we can visualize relative size, but even that approach isn’t perfect.

I was looking at a Shark Mug on uncommongoods.com and noticed this curious link (red arrow in screenshot below)—

Uncommongoods.com_Product_Page

On click this appeared on screen—

Lifesizer.com_Pop_Up

Then I just selected my screen size and was shown a new product image where mug was displayed in actual size on screen (the size I’d see if I was looking at mug in person).  Very cool.  This service is provided by a third party tool called lifesizer.com.
