Turn Your Phone into a 3D Scanner

This Microsoft Tech Turns Any Phone Camera into a 3D Scanner

Farrha Khan | August 24, 2015

While Microsoft has been busy launching Windows 10, its research team has found a way to turn your phone's main camera into a 3D scanner.
Called MobileFusion, Microsoft says it can use a smartphone's rear camera - specifically, the RGB capabilities of the camera - to capture an object multiple times and from different angles, then build a 3D model automatically.

Experts are of the opinion that scans from MobileFusion are of high enough quality to be used not just for 3D printing, but for use in augmented reality  Source:
