As Fitbit-style devices become more commonplace — it has even made it into the sport of kayaking — Naked unveils a smart mirror that scans users for precise feedback on the progress they are making on their bodies.
Naked’s fitness tracker has three components: a wall socket-powered mirror with infrared sensors, a set of rotating scales (charged wirelessly via the mirror) and an app for iPhone or Android. Users stand on the scales in front of the mirror, which takes a 3D scan of their body as they rotate. Information on weight, body fat and muscle gain are uploaded to the app via Bluetooth 4.0, and the user can see stats, infographics and a 3D rendering of their body, as well as heat-maps of how their body shape is changing throughout an exercise regime.
The Naked 3D fitness mirror is available for pre-order from USD 499, and full release is scheduled for 2017. How could body scanning mirrors be used in other industries?
