Turn your iPhone into a 3D scanner

Turn your iPhone into a 3D scanner

The new iOS Trimensional app is amazing to say the least. Developed by Grant Schindler, a researcher from Georgia Tech (USA), it allows you to make a 3D model of any face or object, from the camera of your iPhone 4 or iPad 2.

To achieve such a feat, the application uses an algorithm using the light produced by the iDevice screen and then digitizes the reliefs of the face or object.

Once the result is obtained, you can share it with your friends by email (it is not yet possible to share via social networks directly from the application).

Finally, an extension of the App (buy in app, 3.99) allows you to export the result obtained in 3D to three formats (OBJ, STL te PLY).

Download the Trimensional app from the App Store (0.79).

We discuss it on the forum.
