And the winner is
A few weeks ago, our 3D scan and personalisation platform made its worldwide debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Over the four day festival we scanned over 500 faces in the Future Lab, a curated showcase of the biggest technological developments in everything from motorsports to healthcare. Our mission was to discover just how different our faces really are and to highlight how technology has the power to drive innovation and the personalisation of eyewear.
As part of the fun we ran a competition each day to find the person with the closest matching facial proportions to top international racing driver Johnny Mowlem. To find out whose face was the closest fit we compared a number of different measurements with a 3D scan of Johnny Mowlem’s face. As expected nobody was a perfect match, but one of our four winners achieved a surprising 99.94% match.
Step up to the podium, our four winners are:
Each of our lucky winners will be receiving a custom made pair of sunglasses made using their unique facial measurements to ensure a perfect fit.
Looking at the data from all the scans we gathered it was interesting to see the wide range of variability in how our faces are structured. While generally there is not that much variation in where the main facial landmark positions lie, it is the subtle differences of each face that compound together to make all the difference when trying to find a pair of off-the-shelf glasses that fit comfortably.
We were also able to extract some interesting insights from the differences in facial shape, including pupillary distances ranging from 34-71mm, average face width of 117mm and height of 182mm and that face width is roughly 64% of face height.
