3D Scanning iPhone App Might Just Blow Your Mind

Who said you had go to CES in Las Vegas to have your mind blown by the latest technology. Just head over to the App Store for this nifty 3D Scanner that you can install on your iPhone. At $0.99, it’s likely a cheaper way to geek out than airfare and hotel accommodations in Nevada.

From the minds at Trimensional, this app uses the standard equipment on your iPhone or latest generation iPod Touch – the camera and the screen. Rather than traditional 3D technology that requires multiple camera angles, this application uses the basic depth-perception ability out there – shadows.

According to their website, “Trimensional uses both the screen and the front-facing camera on your iOS device, detecting patterns of light reflected off your face to build a true 3D model.”

As with so many of the best apps out there, the practical use of such a function are questionable now, but someone will likely put it into use in a way that will further amaze us.
