Amazon is giving out $25 gift cards to users for a 3D scan of their body
The company is running a study to understand the human body better.

Those who are willing to get scanned will be required to participate in a 30-minute session at Amazon's Union Square office in New York City. After height and weight measurements, 3D scans will be taken in everyday clothing.
Another set of 3D scans will be done in form-fitting clothing such as bikini or form-fitting shorts for the women. It is unclear as to how the study results will be used but Amazon says it is to learn about diversity among body shapes and the data will be used for internal product research and not for marketing purpose.
