New algorithm could turn your smartphone camera into a 3D scanner

While 3D scanning technology has vastly improved over the last few years, its pace of development and the speed at which it is reaching consumers can hardly be compared to the successes of 3D printing. While several initiatives are already underway to develop affordable handheld scanners, the solution might have been in your possession all along. For a team of researchers from Brown University have just announced the development of a 3D scanning algorithm that should bring high quality 3D scanning to smartphones and even to off-the-shelf digital cameras.
