New Smart Mirror Takes a 3D Body Scan and Tracks Fitness
You can now own a smart mirror that generates a 3D model of your body, instantly.
California start-up Naked Labs opened pre-orders on April 14 for the home use 3D body scanner, which looks just like a mirror.
Naked’s 3D Fitness Tracker consists of a full-length mirror containing built-in sensors and a weight scale “turntable.” The system uses infrared light to scan your body and create a 3D model that is viewable on the Naked companion app.
Co-founders and CEOs, Farhad Farahbakhshian and Ed Sclater, have a passion for fitness and technology. The engineers said they wanted to create a device that would visualize one’s fitness progress “far quicker than what you would see on a scale or than what your eyes would show you in a mirror.”
You can observe the fluctuations in your numbers over time, offering an objective perspective to your body’s changes.
Features such as time lapses and side-by-side comparisons will allow an increased ability to track progress (or non-progress, as the case may be).
One mirror can be linked up to six separate Naked accounts, so it’s suitable for multiple users. With the ability to measure people up to a weight of 330 pounds and height of 6-foot-6, the mirror is suitable for most people—although taller people’s scans will have a slightly lower resolution.
United States residents can purchase the mirror for $499, plus shipping, but the product won’t be shipped until March 2017.
