Amazon is offering the public during the month of May a very original proposal: to undergo a 3D digital scan of your body. Although the test, which is part of a study, is not very attractive at first glance, many will think about it, since the prize is a gift card of 25 dollars to spend on any of the millions of products offered by the giant portal of Online sales.
“Participants will be subjected to two scanners, one with their usual clothes and one with tight clothes like bikinis or sports tops.”
The American company has just launched this study within their “Body Labs” with the aim of “studying the diversity of body shapes,” he explains on his website. The experiment is already underway in the offices of Union Square and Herald Square of Amazon in New York City – so it is not eligible for any user – and will end in June.
The participants will have to sign a confidentiality agreement whereby they agree to keep everything learned or experienced during the session secret, since their reactions and results will be taken into account in the design of their next products, according to the company.
Interested persons can register in an online form, which specifies aspects such as the participants will be subjected to a 3D scan, videos and photos, both dressed in their usual clothes and with tight clothing, in the case of women , may be a bikini or a set consisting of a pair of pants and a sports top.
People with long hair will be forced to wear a hat. Parameters such as height and weight will be taken during the session, as indicated in the instructions. Those people who have already participated in other Amazon studies carried out with a scanner or who are minors will not be able to participate.
The test will last 30 minutes and the company ensures that the results will be used exclusively for research of its products, and not for marketing studies.
