E-Capture R&D has this week unveiled their new creation in the form of the EyesMap tablet which has been designed to provide users with a 3D modelling tablet and application that is capable of creating 3D rendering of objects in real-time. The EyesMap tablet has been designed as a measurement instrument that can be used in real time as a 3D modelling generator. Watch the video after the jump to see the new 3D sensing technology in action. EyesMap enables users to calculate coordinates, areas and surfaces of all kinds of objects and environments and can even replace some traditional surveying tools.
As we reported earlier this year, Google is building a mobile device with 3D sensing capabilities — under the Project Tango moniker. But it’s not the only company looking to combine 3D sensing with mobility. Spanish startup E-Capture R&D is building a tablet with 3D sensing capabilities that’s aiming to target the enterprise space — for example as a portable tool for surveyors, civil engineers, architects and the like — which is due to go on sale at the beginning of 2015. The tablet, called EyesMap, will have two rear 13 megapixel cameras, along with a depth sensor and GPS to enable it to measure co-ordinates, surface and volumes of objects up to a distance of 70 to 80 meters in real-time. So, for instance, it could be used to capture measurements of – or create a 3D model of — a bridge or a building from a distance. Or to model objects as small as insects so it could be used to 3D scan individual components by civil engineers, for instance. Its makers claim it can build high resolution models with HD realistic textures.
