Suit you sir!

This is an interesting concept, especially as it's using Kickstarter to get off the ground. Carapace wetsuits, based out of Southern California, has figured out how to make custom-fitted wetsuits for people at normal wetsuit prices. It's kind of the holy grail of manufacturing.

Here's how it works. On a website, you are guided with video to take 15 different measurements of your own body. Carapace takes those measurements, applies custom algorithms to them, then puts those numbers into a CAD file, and presto, each panel is the precision cut so when the whole suit comes together it fits all of your body's little freaky weirdnesses just perfectly. 

I've heard of custom drysuits but can't say I've heard of custom wetsuits. This might just be the ticket if you're an odd shape like me :-P
