Australian technology start up mPort has announced the launch of a mobile app to complement its increasingly accessible, world-first 3D body-mapping mPods, located in Westfields nationally, and its online visual body-progress and tracking platform, mPort.com.
Once a user has completed a 3D body map at one of 19 mPod locations around the country, they can use the app to visualise and track their health, monitor their BMI, fat and muscle percentages, and track physical changes in their body shape via their 3D avatar. Users will also know their Basal metabolism rate, target weight, and ideal heart rate range.
On the launch of the app, mPort founder and CEO Dipra Ray said: “With around 20 per cent of our customers already tracking their health achievements via mPort’s mobile website, we know Australians are searching for a way to know their body differently than by numbers. With their 3D avatar, customers can track their health and physical progress visually, where and when they want to.
“Our mobile app will enable mPort users to monitor and improve their physical health. This can include reducing their overall body fat percentage, increasing their muscle mass, or targeting specific areas of their body they’d like to make stronger, leaner or healthier.
“Via our 3D body mapping mPods and our online and mobile platforms we want to empower Australians to know their body, celebrate its strengths and individuality, and provide them with the knowledge to look, feel and be their personal best, as well as visualise their progress over time.”
Since the launch of the first mPod prototype in 2013, mPort has expanded rapidly, achieving more than 90,000 measured users.
The mPod captures more than 200,000 data points using non-invasive infrared technology, making accessing information about your body and physical health empowering, easy and instant. mPort bring physical and health data to life in a visual format so users can actively see their goals and progress. A 3D body scan in an mPod takes a few minutes and each user’s data is housed securely online so they can access it anytime.
Zoetropes, a praxinoscope, early projectors, and a phenakistoscope have all been used to channel what is considered a monumental moment for carmaker Volkswagen in a new short by Johannes Leonardo. Directed by Sam Brown, the 90-second film ‘The Wheel’ uses some of the oldest devices of motion in film—the Zoetrope (praxinoscope, early projectors, and phenakistoscope)—as […]
