The crude scan above was generated using a Project Tango. The Tango tablet makes it quick an easy to scan objects, rooms, people, but it isn’t as high quality as using a dedicated rig. There are a few technologies you might already have to get started with 3D scanning. One of the best is the XBOX Kinect sensor.
How can we use this technology in useful ways? Immediately I look at photogrammetry as something that can be used to create ultra realistic training simulators and educational tools. I scanned the entrance to the North Forge accelerator here in Manitoba where we work.
I wanted to place you inside a space. We could ideally bring this to a video game experience where users explore the actual real life space with hotspots and overlays. The wheels are spinning now for how we can use this. How can you see this technology helping you?
