In recent eyebrow raising headlines, e-commerce and tech giant Amazon wants to 3D-scan your body in exchange for a $25 USD gift card.

According to CNET, an online form leading to the study was discovered by an employee at Mashable. The information on the form stated participants would have to pose in “minimal form-fitting clothing,” stating swimwear is preferred, while the scan takes 3D pictures and video scans for approximately 30 minutes.
