Amazon Working on New Body Shaming Technology

If you just thought you were fat and ugly, wait till Amazon is working on showing you just how fat and ugly you really are so that it can sell you more clothes. The kids over at The Conversation are very worried about what happens to you when you see a 3D body scan of yourself. It is going to make you feel sadder and worse about your appearance. Of course they are assuming that you were sad about it in the first place. On the upside, tubetop sales in the deep south have fallen to all time lows. In other news, mirrors are under heavy scrutiny as well and Scotland Yard is rumored to be looking at breaking all of those in Britain under new hate speech laws. Yes folks, truth is stranger than fiction nowadays.

Amazon is reportedly looking for people who are willing to have their bodies scanned in 3D in order to track and measure subtle changes in their sizes and shapes. It’s part of the company’s broader push to sell more clothes by more accurately predicting how garments will fit different body shapes.

But Amazon may not be considering the psychological effects 3D body scans can have on consumers.
