Microsoft wants to turn your Windows Phone into a 3D face scanner

39 sec read

Microsoft Research is working on a technology which will scan faces using a regular Windows Phone camera, and print high quality 3D images using a 3D printer. The method of turning physical objects into 3D models is called 3D Reconstruction, and Microsoft is using the Skynet UI to make the whole process a lot easier for consumers. Microsoft showed off the technology that runs on Windows Phone 8 at the TechFest this week. 

The folks over at Microsoft Research have certainly been working hard to make sure that the future is something that is well worth looking into – so much so that they intend to figure out a method that relies on a regular Windows Phone camera in order to scan one’s face in full 3D goodness, giving one the option to print out a high quality image using a 3D printer afterwards. This particular process is known as 3D Reconstruction, where it deals with transforming physical objects into 3D models, and the Skynet UI (User Interface) is meant to make the entire process a whole lot easier for regular consumers to use.
