Struc­ture Sen­sor

Turn an iPad’s cam­era into a mo­bile 3D scan­ner

Mac Format - - NEWS -

2D is so yes­ter­day! This ac­ces­sory at­taches to an iPad and con­nects with a Light­ning ca­ble. The sen­sor ex­pands on the iPad’s built-in cam­era to cap­ture and dis­play 3D scans. It casts thou­sands of in­vis­i­ble in­frared dots onto ob­jects in a room. Us­ing ‘struc­tured light’, the sen­sor records the dis­tance be­tween each dot and the cam­era to con­struct a 3D geo­met­ric pic­ture. The sen­sor has a depth sens­ing range of nearly 12 feet, so it’s per­fect for scan­ning around in­door rooms to take mul­ti­ple mea­sure­ments at once.

From $379 (about £250) web­site struc­ in­cludes iPad bracket works with iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2, 3 and 4
