Tech startup Occipital recently successfully funded a camera that attaches to the iPad and takes 3-D images of objects. It, along with the compatible app make it possible for you to turn anything into a 3-D object that you can then upload into a cloud storage and use for video game avatars, 3-D printing, and more.
Using the Structure Sensor, users scan every angle of an object in order to stitch them together to create a virtual 3-D object. The itSeez3D is an app that reads the information from the Structure Sensor and processes it into the desired object. The captured images are then uploaded to a 3-D compatible cloud storage, like Sketchfab, so they can be used for things like video game avatars, 3-D printer models, and more.
