The newest computer vision technology can’t literally see through your sweater and slacks, but it can determine the shape of your unclad body.

Brown University computer scientists have developed software that takes ordinary images of people dressed in street clothes and digitally peels away the layers to determine their 3-D body shape.

In a partnership with Rhode Island State Police, Brown computer scientist Michael Black developed tools to figure out a person’s basic physical attributes from a grainy surveillance video.
