Rob is finally coming out of the school drysuit and into his own drysuit, so after a little bit of research and pricing of drysuits, he has decided on the Fourth Element Argonaut (more on that in another blog).
This meant that we were exposed to the Fourth Element BIOMAP system for the first time outside of a dive show.
What is the BIOMAP system?
The world first BIOMAP system from Fourth Element is a photo imaging system developed to interpret photos of the diver in order to take accurate measurements of their body, to produce an Argonaut 2.0 Drysuit. The BIOMAP system enables accurate prediction of the correct standard size, or creates a bespoke pattern for a made to measure suit.
The BIOMAP system has been developed to enable measurements to be taken accurately in store or at dive events, and submitted automatically with a full specification for a drysuit via their online system.
BIOMAP.3D uses full body scanning to create a 3D model of your body from which hundreds of accurate measurements can be taken before determining what size suit you need, or, if made to measure is required, to create a unique pattern for your suit, if you have ever been to a dive show, then you might have seen it in action.
So armed with nothing more than a camera, a computer connected to the internet and a reorganisation of the shop to get the required distance for the pictures we setup and successfully took the two required pictures and loaded them directly into the Fourth Element dealer portal, it was that simple. Well it was once we had Rob kitted out in a set of Fourth Element J2 Baselayer.
Initial comment from Rob on the baselayers was that they were comfortable, so if you are looking for a new base layer this winter then consider the Fourth Element J2.
