Every body is different. So is every picture of health, every beauty ideal, every ergonomic need. You can’t see nuance in a photo, measure it in pounds, put it nicely in a size S or M or L. You’re changing every day, little by little. Your body is not a template. And yet, all too often we judge the measurement of our physical wellbeing by a single number on a scale.
To give people a new, innovative way to track the health data that really matters, Silicon Valley startup Naked Labs created the world’s first home 3D body scanner. To help develop this product and brand, they turned to Edenspiekermann.
Acting like a futuristic mirror, the device—which includes a scale, a smart mirror and an app—captures a 3D model of your body. Users can visualize, compare and measure their results, bringing motivation to a whole new level, optimizing workouts and creating regular, consistent routines.
Our process started with a foundational understanding of the opportunities for the brand and product. Building upon months of beta testing with real users of the product, our team built a suite of archetypes. These archetypes acted as the basis for future design decisions.
One key aspect of our work was the need to think beyond the first use case of the product—personal fitness—of the product. The potential applications of Naked technology is poised to span including retail, automation, and medicine, bringing a whole new meaning to the concept of a custom fit. Through a series of workshops and close collaboration with the client we defined the overall brand strategy and product vision.
Your body is everything. Take care of it, and it gets you to the top of mountains, to 26-and-a-half miles, to the ripe old age of 100. It’s also yours, and yours alone. So don’t let some number or magazine or lifestyle guru tell you what your body’s supposed to look like. See for yourself instead. See every curve, every contour, backed by the metrics that matter. Relish every battle scar, every fantastic flaw, every opportunity to get healthier, stronger, sexier. Celebrate every bead of sweat, every wrinkle, every setback, every victory. Because every body has a story.
