Amazon Acquires 3D Body Model Startup Body Labs

Published by , October 9, 2017 1:17 pm

(TechCrunch) Amazon has acquired Body Labs, a company with a stated aim of creating true-to-life 3D body models to support various b2b software applications — such as virtually trying on clothes or photorealistic avatars for gaming. One source suggested the price-tag Amazon paid for Body Labs could be $100M+. However a second well-placed source suggested it’s closer to $70M than $100M — TechCrunch estimates it at between $50M and $70M.
An Amazon spokeswoman declined to comment on the acquisition.
