BEIJING -- With the fitness equipment industry growing at a rapid pace as more people choose to exercise at home amid the coronavirus pandemic, Chinese startup myShape is hoping to benefit from this trend.

The company recently released in China an artificial intelligence-based smart fitness mirror, like those sold by Mirror in the U.S. The myShape mirror projects instructor videos and provides feedback that enables users to correct their movements via virtual instructors and 3D deep learning cameras embedded in the glass. It has around 1,500 training modes.
