Elasizer - A Low Cost 3D Space Measuring Elastic Tape for Everyone
Elasizer, Kirov, Russia
The proposed solution is based on image recognition technology and geometry. The body 3D parameters may be extracted from 2D images.
To extract space body parameters, it is enough to put on a thin, highly stretchable elastic cover, on which, the surface is marked by non-stretchable geometrical objects to capture the image of the body. The size of each geometrical object and its position on the cover are known, which lets the computer system estimate the distance between the objects and build a virtual manikin of the body. The geometrical objects play two roles - as size etalons and markers. The combination of the single markers allows creation of a unique constellation of the markers, which transform the surface into a map or barcode, adding the ability to recognize the certain surface and body parts faster. Because of the markers, we are given the opportunity to use the technology in capturing body motion.
