Wow. How much $ to fit you? Sounds like overkill for the average rider.

Wow...sounds WAY high tech! Haven't heard of such a thing.

Googling I come up with some more info:

Here's some info from a Bicycle.com article:

"Pro Fit Services
A bona fide fit session will take at least an hour, and can last two or more, and starts at about $100 for basic fitting: seat height and fore-aft position, cockpit position and cleat position on the shoes. Here are some options.

Serotta Size Cycle: Developed by framebuilder Ben Serotta, the Size Cycle system is used by hundreds of shops and sports medicine facilities nationwide. It requires technicians to take a certification class and is one of the most proven fit services available. Find a list of certified shops and technicians at Serotta.com.

Fit Kit: Perhaps best known as a system for aligning cleats on shoes, the venerable Fit Kit also includes a complete bike-fitting service. The Radial Alignment Device is still the primary cleat-fitting service available, and the fitting can be done as part of the overall fit or as a separate service, useful if you've used an online fit service and need additional cleat help. Visit Bikefitkit.com for a list of certified shops.

Body Scanning CRM: Less intensive, and less expensive, than Serotta or Fit Kit's program, Body Scanning CRM is a series of quick measurements and questions which, after being fed into a computer, provide you with some baseline fit information to help you fit a stock-size bicycle correctly and comfortably."

A bike shop in Jackson has one and they say they scan you and it determines best bike fit. It's a two 1/2 hour drive so wondering if its worth the drive and how accurate?
