  • 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.
