Nothing beats a mirror, but 3D body scanning pods comes close

What if you could buy the right-sized clothes without having to step into a dressing room? mPort is a full body scanner and measuring pod being launched across malls in Australia, and it hopes to change the way you shop.

Step into the mPort pod to start inputting basic information, like age and gender. Strip down so that the machine can start scanning: it will measure height, weight, waist, hips, thighs, and other useful numbers.

The machine uses safe, infrared technology to record the measurements, and stores the data on mPort's servers (not the local booth). Users will be able to view and track their measurements on the mPort website, or through an app. mPort doubles as a health measuring app, tracking things like BMI, fat content and waist-to-hip ratio. The website will even allow users to set and track fitness goals.
