I found an article about a new device called the Orcam Which takes photos of every angle of the object inside the sphere and Reconstructs this into a perfect 3d model…

How brilliant is that!

Also this is my first post. So hey every one :)

Hii there! Thanks for sharing :)

I do however think it’s somewhat primitive, and not to mention well… huge. I mean for the same tech that we’ve had for quite some time provided free of charge for “experimental purposes”, available to anyone with a point and shoot camera, this seems quite a bit behind schedule if you know what I’m talking about xD

Not to mention the obvious laser scanners that reached a much more portable size in the meanwhile.

But nonetheless, I admire the fidelity, and method used to “scan” the object incl. texture and specular details.

Quite amazing.. But @contrastblack, why do you think it’s behind schedule :P Although it’s muuuch bigger and more demanding than a traditional laser scanner, this seems more like rocket science to me… It reproduces materials and textures automatically, and most importantly, physically correct ! (BDRF and reflections wise)

Thing is that it is either gonna ease our life some day as 3d artists… Or help us lose our jobs :D

Welcome to 3dO cinema4dmad !

Cheers !

I can see what you mean about maybe ruining the careers of 3d artists unfortunately, But still it’s very cool :)

I’m not what you’d call a 3d artist though, i’m still learning! I’m only 18 :L

Pretty much looks like they made a commercial product out of Paul Debevec’s lightstage http://gl.ict.usc.edu/Research/DigitalEmily/ Nothing beats that

I doubt it produces optimized meshes. The technology has been around for quite a while.
