New Sensor Can Teach Tablets To See In 3D

on Tuesday, Sep. 17th

What if our devices could see the world the way we do, in 3D? What possibilities would that unlock?

That's the question that drives the development of the Structure Sensor, a device from San Francisco design firm Occipital that is currently raising funds on Kickstarter.

With the Structure Sensor attached to your mobile device, you can walk around the world and instantly capture it in a digital form. This means you can capture 3D maps of indoor spaces and have every measurement in your pocket. You can instantly capture 3D models of objects and people for import into CAD and for 3D printing. You can play mind blowing augmented reality games where the real world is your game world. 

In the video you can see that Occipital has paired the Sensor with the Oculus Rift VR rig, solving the "I can't see my hands" problem that comes up with the device.
