A novel three-dimensional (3D) body scanner with a connected rotating scale and companion mobile app enables users to track how their bodies change over time.

The Naked Labs (San Francisco; CA, USA) Naked 3D body scanner is a full-length body mirror that uses three Intel RealSense depth sensors to construct a user's unique 3D body model. The model is created by using the rotating weight scale to turn the user a full 360 degrees during a 15-second period. After scanning, the model can be viewed in the accompanying app to see a holistic suite of metrics, including body fat percent, lean mass and fat mass, circumferences, side-by-side comparisons, and graphs of historical data.

A built-in class 1 laser pointer is used to align the rotating scale before scanning, and a full-color light emitting diode (LED) ring is used to communicate instructions and feedback during the body scan. The software runs on an Intel x86 processor with 4GB RAM and stored on a 64GB SSD. Linkage to the Apple iOS 8 and above and Android Lollypop apps is available both via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The scanning mirror is powered via an AC socket or via the rechargeable 2200mAh lithium-ion battery. A fully charged scale will last for approximately 100 scans.

“We have been looking forward to this day for a long time. Today, people are searching for evidence-based methods to track health and fitness that aren't solely focused on weight,” said Farhad Farahbakhshian, co-founder and CEO of Naked Labs. “We are excited to get Naked into people's homes to give them better insight into exactly what's going on in their body and help them work towards their goals.”

“We are pleased to provide Naked Labs with Intel RealSense technology,” said Sagi BenMoshe, vice president and general manager of the Intel RealSense Group. “This is a great example of how we are enabling our customers to build products that enrich people's lives through devices and machines that perceive the world in 3D.”
