Forget the whole skinny mirror conspiracy theory (you know, you’re standing in a changing room debating whether those jeans actually make you look thinner or if you’re dealing with a duplicitous skinny mirror that’s tricking you into thinking they do). Thanks to the wonders of technology, there’s now a mirror that will tell you the absolute truth.
The Naked 3D Fitness tracker, which just went on preorder yesterday for $499, scans your whole body composition and provides stats that a scale, even a fancy one, could never give you.
The full-length mirror is equipped with Intel RealSense Depth Sensors, which use infrared light to 3-D scan your body as you’re spun standing on a Bluetooth-enabled scale/turntable. In 20 seconds you get an overview of your weight, body fat percentage, muscle mass, change over time, and more on the paired app. It’s allegedly as accurate as the water displacement test for body fat–within 1.5 percent accuracy.
The mirror masterminds at Naked Labs claim it can also be useful in the future for retail. Anyone who’s ever been in a mall knows how disparate sizing can be between brands; these measurements would allow shoppers to get clothes that fit right…and maybe inspire full-blown PANICS in changing rooms, who knows! But the mirrors won’t be shipping until March 2017, so you have a full year of stress-free skinny-mirror shopping left.
