    Turn your Android Phone into a 3D scanner with this app.

    What to say. Amazing stuff.
    And in advance, they haven't released the APK yet to protect their research.

    The Computer vision and geometry Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) developed an app that uses your cellphone camera to make 3d scans on the go. The nice thing, all the calculations are made on your device, so you're able to see if your scan was good enough to reconstruct the model. It also allows to change perspective of the scanning to get cavities and such.

    What more to say. Watch the video, visit their page.
    Personally I can't wait to try the app.

    No.

    Either you didn't make it to the second line of my post, or you don't know what an APK is.
    It's an Android application package file, I actually thought that's something people just know. Happens a lot

    This is pretty fantastic! 123D Catch works really well but when you have worked with laser scanners you always want more.

    I find the use of a smartphone smart because of the mobility but also because of the smartphone sensors this software can use.
