NEW YORK — October 5, 2016 — Body Labs, provider of the world’s most advanced technology for analyzing the human body’s shape, pose and motion, announced today a partnership with 3dMD, the world’s leading provider of high-precision static-3D and temporal-3D (marker-less 4D) systems for seamlessly capturing the human body’s anatomical shape, pose, and motion, to provide the first body scan to 3D model processing solution.
The solution starts with the 3dMD system as the high-fidelity body digitization portal for the consumer. Body Labs then transitions the consumer’s 3dMD scan into Body Labs’ 3D models that can be reposed, measured, animated and integrated into third-party software.
The partnership of Body Labs and 3dMD enables two industry leaders to empower businesses to now easily capture a subject’s body shape, color information and render a 3D scan with proven anatomical precision.
Using 3dMD’s 3D and 4D scanning systems Body Labs can automatically process accurate 3dMD scans into accurate 3D digital avatars using Body Labs’ AI engine. This equips users to now go from scan to application instantly.
“The integration of our software and technology with 3dMD’s hardware unites two leaders to provide one of the most cohesive scan processing solutions in the market,” said Bill O’Farrell, CEO and co-founder of Body Labs. “With Body Labs and 3dMD we let technology get out of the way and enable the business to focus on the design of personalized products and services centered around their customers.”
“At an individual level the principals of 3dMD and Body Labs have shared a long term vision for revolutionizing the way that industry can understand the complexities of human factors to support innovative new materials and manufacturing,” said Chris Lane, CEO and co-founder of 3dMD. “After respective periods of intense product innovation in conjunction with a number of shared customers, it is appropriate that we make our integrated technology offering available to the marketplace in the form of this product alliance.”
With automated end-to-end Body Labs/3dMD integration, users can easily:
● Capture high-quality 3dMD body and feet scans with proven anatomical precision.
● Process the scans into sophisticated 3D digital avatars.
● Import virtual fit models (bodies or feet) into 3D computer-aided design (CAD) programs to improve sizing or grading rules.
● Conduct sizing studies or population analysis efficiently.
● Plug characters into animation software, gaming or virtual reality (VR) engines.
● Run shape analytics alongside fitness data for individuals or groups of users.
About Body Labs: Body Labs collects, digitizes and organizes all of the data and information related to human body shape, pose and motion. It is the first and only company to use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms to deliver the most accurate and versatile 3D digital body shape in the world. Its mission is to transform the human body into a digital platform upon and around which goods and services can be designed, produced, bought and sold.
About 3dMD: With a proven customer track record in healthcare, 3dMD develops and markets ultra-fast static-3D (single-shot) and temporal-3D (up to 60 3D fps) scanners designed specifically to capture human subjects with the anatomical shape precision and color fidelity demanded for serious application in healthcare, biometrics, wearables, apparel, ergonomics, human factors, and research. Available to capture the full 360-degree body, or body areas such as the face, head, torso, limbs, thorax, foot, or hand, 3dMD systems deliver high-precision 3D surface images, or a sequence of progressive high-precision 3D surface images, with every click in a very efficient subject workflow.
