App for next-generation depth-sensor smartphones that makes 3D scanning a collaborative process - video embedded below:
The future of 3D scanning is that we’ll all be able to do it together! Check out this demo by Paracosm of the Google ATAP Labs Project Tango phones. Paracosm and Google Labs have been working side by side to create the technology to make collaborative scanning possible.
You can find out more (and see an interactive WebGL demo of the above data capture) at the Paracosm website here
This is in the direction of how I expect this tech to create a new methodology in photography, “Collaborative Photography”, where authorship is shared and captures are synced. Think of it this way - imagine the group-selfie requiring not one single camera, but several at exactly the same time, with devices communicating to each other sharing their data together to produce the final ‘shot’.
