Models for Every Body

The body is the next interface between businesses and consumers.

Technology

Body Labs has the world's most advanced technology for analyzing human body size, shape, and motion. There has never before been a fully automated, simple way to create 3D body models that can move through the entire range of human motion.

How It Works

1
Inputs

Customer provides a 3D scan or body measurements.

2
Algorithm

Using state-of-the-art algorithms developed at multiple world-class research institutions, we create a highly accurate 3D body model optimized to fit the customer's data.

3
Result

Customer receives a body model that can realistically be reposed and reshaped!

Features

Speed and Ease of Use

By simply inputting data into Body Hub, anyone can produce a 3D model of themselves that correctly and visually depicts their body shape.

Motion Capabilities

Our body models can be realistically posed, animated, deformed, and taken through the full range of human motion.

Body Morphing

We can reshape a body model: make it taller or shorter, thinner or wider, fitter or more resembling a couch potato.

Shape Statistics

Given a collection of bodies, we can provide an average overall shape, averages of specific parts, and statistics on how shapes vary.

Customers

Everything ever made for human beings relates in some way to the body.

Here's why body models are important to our customers.

Retail Apparel

Design

We create digital fit models so that clothing design and pattern fitting can be done through computer-aided design (CAD) software. This significantly reduces the need to cut samples and drape live models. Our technology greatly speeds up the design process and improves manufacturing efficiency.

Equipment / Product Design

and Manufacturing

We provide extensive insight into human body shape, pose, and movement, and create prototype models of designated subpopulations – whether soldiers, basketball players, or sprinters. This enables more exact sizing and fit, and cost-effective manufacturing.

Custom Clothing Design

and Production

We create 3D digital fit models either from a set of measurements or a 3D scan – or soon, photos. From these models, a custom clothing pattern can be automatically generated and sent to production.

Video Game Design

and Production

Using a body model, we can pose the human form and change the shape of the form and pose instantaneously. As a result, video game companies can quickly design and produce intricate games at a fraction of the cost.

Services

Body Labs provides services that range from the creation of 3D body models to custom 3D shape analysis and funded software development.

We create 3D models from scans or measurements, for businesses and individuals. A customer uploads scan or measurement information through BodyHub and we return a corresponding 3D body model that can be posed, animated, dressed, or otherwise manipulated.

Body Shape Analytics

We align and analyze survey data from population studies for clothing, equipment, and uniforms. Industries include apparel companies, municipal work forces, and military divisions.

Software Licensing

Our capabilities can be integrated into and supported by computer aided design (CAD) software and video game tools. We produce and license plug-ins for these programs.

Funded Development

Large entities in the apparel, product, gaming, and government sectors have specific needs for which we adapt our software.

Team
