HEXR has developed a smartphone fitting app allowing customers to create a custom cycling helmet modelled to fit their head.
The app uses the latest methods in Machine Vision to capture over 250,000 data points of a customer's head shape, resulting in a unique helmet that should perfectly fit the individual.
HEXR claim the app "uses the most accurate 3D scanning technology available on a smartphone, able to measure details finer than a grain of rice in size." Augmented reality guides the user through the fitting process,making it "fun, easy and intuitive to complete" say HEXR.
Once the fitting is complete, HEXR manually reviews the data and sends it back to the customer to view. This includes metrics such as head size, weight and percentile.
The custom data is then sent to a leading 3D printing factory based in the UK to be manufactured into a helmet, assembled, quality checked and delivered within five weeks. Throughout the process, customers can check the status of their order in real-time through the app.
"Like many, 2020 has been a unique year for us at HEXR," says Henry Neilson, co-founder and CTO at HEXR.
"The rapid transformation of what is possible and necessary for safe commerce, has borne some of the world's most advanced 3D capturing software, neatly wrapped in a beautiful and intuitive interface.
"I am immensely proud of the HEXR team who have built this, making custom available to millions, and further challenging the limits of existing technology."
The app is available to download now on devices supporting iOS 13 onwards (iPhone 6S and newer), giving over 600 million people around the world access to a safer and custom fit helmet at their fingertips.
