Naked Labs has developed a 3D fitness Tracker, a one of its kind. The tracker works with a very unique style as it scans your complete body through mirror and a scale and captures your weight and the outline of your body.
The information is then used to calculate the amount of fat you have and unveils whether your efforts to come into shape are showing results or not irrespective of the fact that you are losing or not. It is the world’s first 3D Fitness Tracker that includes an Intel Atom quad-core processor, Wi-Fi, a turntable, a companion mobile app, an Intel RealSense depth-sensing camera and scanning technology.
Farhad Farahbakhshian, CEO and cofounder of Naked Labs, said that he wanted to create something that inspire people who hit gym and want to see tangible results. The tracker will help people unveil from where they are losing fat and where they gaining muscle.
The device starts working when you step on a scale in front of the mirror. A turntable spins you around and scans your body in around 20 seconds or so. The data is then transferred to the cloud so that you can see the results on the app on your phone.
The tracker has to be preordered for now and can be purchased at $500. “The Naked 3D Fitness Tracker is transformative in its ability to motivate people to achieve their health and fitness goals through visualizations of their progress on their 3D body model”, mentioned Farahbakhshian.
Farahbakhshian said that with the Naked 3D Fitness Tracker, people can truly understand their bodies. A heat map on the app shows changes to your body geometry over the time. Significant changes are highlight so you can know what transformations are coming in the body. In 2015, Naked Labs was formed which now has 10 employees.
A report published in the PRNewswire said, “We believe the only fitness metric worth tracking is progress. With the Naked 3D Fitness Tracker, people can immediately see how and where their bodies are changing,” said Farhad Farahbakhshian, chief executive officer and co-founder of Naked Labs. “The Naked 3D Fitness Tracker is transformative in its ability to motivate people to achieve their health and fitness goals through visualizations of their progress on their 3D body model.”
“One beta user wanted to increase muscle mass, while another was going through a period of extensive weight loss and trying to get healthy. We have even tracked pregnancies month by month with some of our beta users so that they could see how their pregnancy changed their bodies,” added Farahbakhshian. “Our users have loved being able to see their bodies’ physical changes.”
“We are excited to work with the Naked Labs team on their fitness body scanner for the home, utilizing our industry leading Intel processors and RealSense Technology. This product and application will offer greater insight and awareness to users, helping them check progress on a continuous basis as they work toward healthy body transformation,” said Josh Walden, senior vice president and general manager of the New Technology Group, Intel Corporation.
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.
“An electrical engineer and former spin class instructor, Farahbakhshian observed that many people who are overweight don’t see themselves as such, and people who have eating disorders like anorexia nervosa or hypergymnasia view themselves as healthy when they don’t have enough fat on their bodies,” according to a news report published by Techcrunch.
“Eyes do an amazing job of focusing on problem areas. You get into body dysmorphia if you’re not careful. And it’s hard to stay motivated. This shows people their real progress, or the `naked’ truth,” he said.
In a report published by the Mashable, “Naked Labs, the Ph. D-filled Silicon Valley startup behind the device, missed a trick not calling this the magic mirror. Because that’s exactly what it is. The mirror is equipped with Intel RealSense Depth Sensors. It scans your body while the Bluetooth-connected scales also act as a turntable.”
“Our users have loved being able to see their bodies’ changes,” says Farhad Farahbakhshian, Naked Labs CEO and founder, who has been beta-testing the device with real people since 2015. The visual feedback – especially the app’s timelapse feature that shows what looks like a clay model of your body changing over days and weeks – has kept many of his beta testers on track, he says.
