Would you like 3D-scanner, but do not have thousands of dollars? New application for your iPhone turns your face or another object in 3D-computer model that can easily be edited, or even play with the help of 3D-printer. Application, called Trimensional, was created by Grant Schindler, a scientist from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
It uses the iPhone screen for the design of four different patterns of light on the object of scanning and taking pictures using the front camera. Appendix compares the coverage of images and combines them to get a 3D-model.Schindler admits that his application can not compete with professional 3D-scanners, but it is much, much cheaper. He says that you can grab your face and print it for only half an hour, if you have access to a 3D-printer.
