Georgia Tech Creates 3D Scanner iPhone App
It's called Trimensional, the first app that allows users with an iPhone 4, iPad 2 or recent iPod Touch to take 3-D scans of faces or other objects and share them by e-mail. Now in the latest update, users can also e-mail animated videos of their 3D models. For a few dollars more, artists and designers can even export their creation to CAD programs or 3-D applications, such as Maya. The new pro upgrade for Trimensional (available as an in-app purchase) will also send a file that you can use any 3D program to open, so artists and other 3D professionals or hobbyists can now use this $5 app to perform a task that used to require hundreds of dollars worth of equipment.
The team is currently working on an Android build as well, and you can get a glimpse of what's on offer by playing the video here.
