Occipital’s New Structure Sensor Turns Your iPad Into A Mobile 3D Scanner
A new product from Occipital will turn your iPad into a Mobile 3D Scanner.
The project was launched on a Kickstarter campaign and has passed its $100,000 goal in less than 3 days.
The device will attach to your iPad and turn it into a mobile scanner.
Presumably an app will be developed that will supplement the device to control the inputs and arrange the scanning.
“We’re not really just building a device, we’re building a platform,” Powers said. As far as he sees it, Occipital can’t possibly build every possible augmented reality game or measuring app on its own. Instead, the team is going to make the low level data accessible to developers, and make high level APIs available to developers who know nothing about computer vision in a bid to make the Structure as accessible as possible.
