SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Naked Labs, a Silicon Valley fitness tech startup, today launched the world's first 3D Fitness Tracker for consumers. 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 at $499 USD starting today at www.naked.fit.
"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."
Through research, Naked Labs learned that people who witnessed visible progress after beginning a fitness regimen were much more likely to stick to their routines. Naked Labs' mission is to motivate behavioral change by helping people visualize their progress much faster and more accurately than what can be seen on a traditional weight scale or in a mirror.
People of all fitness levels from the casual exerciser to serious athletes, bodybuilders, weight loss participants, and everyone in between have really enjoyed seeing their bodies change in 3D.
"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."
The development of this innovative body scanner was made possible with key technology from Intel®.
"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.
How It Works: Technology
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.
Top Features and Benefits
The top three features include the following:
- Understand your body. Naked captures an accurate 3D body model of you and displays it on your iPhone or Android smartphone or tablet, providing valuable visual context to your health and fitness goals. Furthermore, it can extract measurements, an accurate body fat percentage, and weight.
- Visualize your progress. 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.
