Shapescale is more than just a scale measuring your weight. It creates a 3D image of your body and sends that data to an app that lets you see things like a heatmap of our body, or weight loss progress. It will even create localized metrics for different areas of your body that you want to improve. A robotic arm extends from the scale and rotates around your body while you stand still.
