@aaronoleary Hi Aaron, we use our patent method to calibrate the mirror selfies so that we have the image in true size (regardless of distance and angle) then we're running it through a neural network to extract the dimensions and from that the Body Fat %

@peter_falk That sounds really interesting! It's so cool to see the advancement of imaging technologies through things like ML and Neural learning! So many possibilities in this field!

@peter_falk sounds like itโ€™d be even more inaccurate than BIA - have you compared this to DEXA or any other relatively accurate measures of body fat?

I like the idea! Any plans on launching the Android edition ?

@footer Hi Amin, yes eventually. Image recognition and extraction can actually be easier on Android. But when that is said, we would need to make a catalog of all phone sizes (which is easier with iPhones) and our development is completely native (as we need to have full controll of the camera, etc..), so it will take time..

Itโ€™s quite cool that you acctually can track and measure the body as part of the morning routine or after the gym session. I like the new versions focus on BF% or Total Inches, that makes it frel like that bathroom scale experience but with the mirror instead.

After taking the automatic pics there is a validation to pin the points to the body. Itโ€˜s good to acctually see where the measurements are taken and I understand that itโ€™s also needs to pin the location exactly. I hope that this step gets more automatic eith time..

But overall a great app solving body measurements much better that anything Iโ€™ Seen before.

Pros:

Use the camera to get measuremnets

Cons:

The annotation process
