As I was casually browsing the internet today, I came across something that I do believe will revolutionize the fitness industry and will completely change the measuring game, FOREVER!
I am not a huge fan of writing “News related” blog posts here, and this will probably be the first and last of its kind, but I decided that I really needed to spread the word about this remarkable device that would be open for pre-order Thursday, next week.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, then here it is:
Apparently a newly developed sart-up company named “Naked Labs” – which may or may not sound like a porn website to some, but is actually a serious deal – are planning on penetrating the fitness industry with their modern and revolutionary product that is referred to as “Naked”. So, I decided to do a bit of digging around and found out some quite interesting facts about the new gadget.
The mirror is equipped with Intel RealSense Depth Sensors. It scans your body and provides you with a full 3D scan in about 20 seconds or less, which trough Bluetooth connectivity (it even has bluetooth) streams the results from the scan directly to your phone through the mirror’s app. This lets you track your body’s changes over time and spot any patterns of improvements or declines.
The app also provides you with a “heat map” that shows you exactly where your body is showing signs of muscle growth or places where you are accumulating body fat – in 20 seconds!
In the app itself you are shown a 3D clay model of yourself that will act as your progress depiction, which apparently you will be able to save and use. Imagine how awesome it would be when you take a look at your before clay model and your after one, where you can spot any changes to your body as you change your diet, or your workout, or even your lifestyle in general! The visual feedback will definitely play a huge role!
According to the CEO of the company Farhad Farahbakhshian the piece of technology will not just be implemented by users who want to build muscle or lose fat but also by other types of people. “We have even tracked pregnancies month by month with some of our beta users so that they could see how their pregnancy change their bodies,” Farahbakhshian says.
Here is an example of one of the app’s users who have apparently made some, according to recent data, has made changes in his rep range for his chest exercise and is already seeing improvements in growth in his pectoral area. And seems to be losing some belly fat as well at the same time (obviously).
Beta testers have also confirmed that the product in-hand is, quote on quote “beautiful, like something Apple would make”, which only increases the excitement. There are apparently no buttons involved, there’s not even a readout screen on the scales. There is a laser pointer in the mirror that lets the user know where exactly to place the scales, which apparently works well on carpets and solid floor and show the same digits, unlike most modern bathroom scales, which tend to show 1-3lbs of a difference when changing the surface on which the scale is standing.
The biggest bummer about this piece of technology, except its name, is the fact that it will not begin shipment until March 2017, which if I have to be honest, is not that bad, but if I could make a choice that would be that I want the product NOW!
Other than that, the product itself will not just change fitness personally, but will also revolutionize the fitness industry in general. It can be used in the fields of education such as sport science and biology studies. It can be used as a powerful tool in scientific studies. And it can even be used by medical entities as well – showing their patients how their bodies are changing due to their changes in diet or exercise.
I personally can’t wait for this product to be available on the market, what are your thoughts on the subject, are you going to pre-order yours or wait and see what other people have to say? Let me know in the comment section below!
On another subject, I am currently writing and finalizing a blog article that will be released later this week.
