3D Scanning is the future. But try finding one that’s both affordable and precise. As with all new technology, we must wait for a mainstream product to come out that’s realistic for everyone. Well, in the realm of 3d scanning, the wait is over.
A group on IndieGoGo is introducing an iPhone 3D scanner that’s smart, powerful and above all, affordable.
iPHONE 3D SCANNER IS A NEW WAY TO CAPTURE THE WORLD
There are various kinds of 3D scanners out there today but this one is different. The people behind this 3D scanner set out to ensure the camera, processors, quality, turntable design, projected light scanners and laser based scanners are of professional quality. Furthermore, it’s only $319. Compare that to competitors that charge upwards of $15,000 for a high-quality model. The secret? Using the power and optics of the iPhone to reduce parts and lower cost.
IPHONE 3D SCANNER FEATURES
With this iPhone 3D Scanner, scans are captured in full color and rent in-app, on screen. It features sub-100 micron precision and has a scan range of 1 meter. Furthermore, for larger objects, you can take multiple scans and stitch them together using the app or on desktop software. A unique feature of this device is the green laser. While most consumer 3D scanners use a red laser, this one adds a little Sci-Fi flair with the green laser. Besides just looking cool, there’s a reason for this. Digital cameras are twice as sensitive to green spectrum as they are to the red. This means you can scan in any lighting.
THE IPHONE 3D SCANNER APP
Since this device is app-driven, you essentially already know how to use it. They designed the app to be user-friendly, uncomplicated and useful. It’s as easy as hitting “scan” and relaxing. Furthermore, the app has a library with Dropbox integration. It’s simple to load your existing 3D models in there and send to the world. Without a doubt, this will change the way we share images forever, and the technology is only going to improve.
