If video game can scan body -- what could be other uses?

No TSA-like body scan.  Rather scan of "outer body" only.

The Xbox 360 Kinect video fitness game Your Shape Fitness Evolved has the ability to scan user bodies as they participate in exercise routines. During exercise, the game monitors for pace and proper body positions (below).

With this type of technology already in homes...
When might online clothing stores offer at home personalized body scans that allow consumers to "try on" clothing in virtual dressing rooms that link specific body shapes/dimensions to actual clothing sizes and styles (that the retailers have digitized as well)?
