mPort is Making a 3D Body Scanner Booth

mport

mPort is an Australian startup that makes a 3D body scanner that looks like a photo booth from the future. The idea is your pay a subscription fee and then regularly access your nearest mPorts for a non-invasive infra red body scan. mPort claims it will accurately map over 200,000 points on your body in 3D. They have already linked up with various e-tailors for custom made clothing. As you might expect this device also has a health focus as it is recording BMI, fat, waste-hip ratios and more. mPort’s app provides a scan history and includes tips and charts to help users with their body shape goals.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
