UNIQLO’s New MySize CAMERA App Introduces bodygram Which Measures Your Body
10.September.2019 | FASHION
UNIQLO’s new MySize CAMERA app has adopted a new deep learning AI program called “bodygram” which can measure multiple areas of your body wherever and whenever by just taking a photo, and with your clothes on too.
Once you’ve entered the person’s height, weight, sex, and age, the snap of a picture will determine the measurements of 10 areas of a person’s body including the chest, hip, and waist.
The data is broken down on an easy-to-read chart which will be indispensable when going out and buying clothes.
Obviously when it comes to vague set sizes like small and medium, the number of cm of a waist, or specifics like shoulders or even waist, measurements can vary from brand to brand. The app solves this issue by having a set measurement and enables you to customise measurements from brand to brand.
The future of clothes shopping is here with bodygram.

My Hero Academia Season 4 Ending Theme ‘Koukai no Uta’ Performed by Sayuri
It has been announced that Japanese singer-songwriter Sayuri’s new song Koukai no Uta (‘Song of Voyage’) will be used as the ending theme for season 4 of the hit shōnen anime series My Hero Academia.
Sayuri’s first studio album Mikazuki no Koukai was released in 2017, making it to No. 1 on Oricon’s daily album charts and No. 3 on its weekly album charts. She has also collaborated with many artists including with Yojiro Noda of RADWIMPS who wrote and produced her song Furaregai Girl as well with MY FIRST STORY on Reimei.
The My Hero Academia manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi is serialised in Weekly Shōnen Jump with over 23 million copies in print. Both the manga and anime have proved sensational both in Japan and overseas.
The fourth season’s ending theme Koukai no Uta was written specifically for the anime series. It touches on Sayuri’s journey from the release of her first album until now and the hope for the future that lies ahead of her. The song will hit shelves on CD as a single on November 27.
Speaking about My Hero Academia, Sayuri comments: “For me, My Hero Academia is a series that protects me, and turns the little feelings inside of me into tangible strength. That’s the kind of thing I wanted to sing about and so I wrote Koukai no Uta. I hope people enjoy it along with the [anime’s] evolving story.”
