  • Patent number: 11900556
    Abstract: A computer system obtains at least one 3D scan of a body surface; automatically identifies, based on the at least one 3D scan, one or more features (e.g., nose, lips, eyes, eyebrows, cheekbones, or specific portions thereof, or other features) of the body surface; and generates a digital 3D model of the body surface. The digital 3D model includes the identified features of the human body surface. In an embodiment, the step of generating of the digital 3D model is based on the at least one 3D scan and the identified features of the body surface. In an embodiment, the digital 3D model comprises a 3D mesh file. The digital 3D model can be used in various ways. For example, output of a manufacturing process (e.g., a 3D printed item, a cosmetics product, a personal care product) can be based on the digital 3D model.

  • Publication number: 20230380576
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a color communication computing system receives a plurality of color interest messages from a plurality of mobile computing devices. Each color interest message indicates a color of a product. The color communication computing system receives a trend request message from a mobile computing device that indicates one or more color component products within one or more cartridges installed in a product mixing device communicatively coupled to the mobile computing device. The color communication computing system determines one or more relevant colors from the plurality of color interest messages. The color communication computing system filters the one or more relevant colors based on whether each relevant color can be dispensed using the color component products within the one or more cartridges installed in the product mixing device communicatively coupled to the mobile computing device, and transmits the filtered one or more relevant colors to the mobile computing device.
