Turn an iPad’s camera into a mobile 3D scanner
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 structure.io includes iPad bracket works with iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2, 3 and 4
The device clips onto the camera side of the iPad with a bracket. The Lightning
cable comes off the other side.
