[Gear] A Camera that Creates 3D Models of Rooms in Minutes
Creating 3D images of interiors, with furniture, colors and textures is a time consuming process to say the least. But now Matterport, a device prototyped from an Xbox Kinect, uses twin lenses on a hand held unit to render a three dimensional space. This tech obviously has a way to go but the preliminary results are impressive none the less. The applications for a camera with this type of mapping capability is definitely a game changer and could radically change the way we capture the world around us. Google Street View, move over. Leave a comment telling us how you see 3D mapping cameras changing the photography community if at all.
