Naked Labs, a Silicon Valley fitness tech startup, has launched the world's first 3D Fitness Tracker for consumers. It will be iOS compatible, though you'll have to wait a while to get one.
The body scanner includes a full-length 3D scanning mirror, a scale that doubles as a turntable, and the Naked mobile app. The Naked 3D Fitness Tracker is available for pre-order for $499. It’s not due to ship until March 2017. When it ships, an accompanying iOS app will be available at the Apple App Store.
When you step on the Naked turntable, the 3D scanner is activated. The turntable rotates you a full 360 degrees in 20 seconds, creating a complete 3D scan of your body. Then, the information is automatically synced to the Naked companion app where you can immediately see the naked truth – yourself in 3D.
According to Farhad Farahbakhshian, CEO and co-founder of Naked Labs, the 3D fitness tracker captures an accurate 3D body model of you and displays it on your iPhone or Android smartphone or tablet, providing visual context to your health and fitness goals. What’s more, it can extract measurements, an accurate body fat percentage, and weight.
Naked's 3D heat map shows changes to your body geometry over days, weeks, and months. Significant changes are highlighted in a different color, so you can note areas of your body where you are gaining muscle or losing fat and vice versa.
With Naked you can create a custom time-lapse of your body. You could, for example, keep an eye on your body’s changes as you train for a marathon, go through a pregnancy, or bulk up with more muscle.
