My brain hurts after watching this. Not so much from figuring out how they did it, that’s fairly straight forward, more from the possibilities it opens up. Really want to use this in a project really soon.
I’m making this up as I type but here’s a few for starters…
- Imagine this built into a digital camera so your holiday snaps can be viewed from any angle.
- Live kids TV will never be the same. No need for real goo any more when you have particle goo on tap.
- Estate agents will have a great way to let you view properties without actually having to deal with them in person.
- Student? Scan your food shelf before summer holiday. Scan it when you get back. Compare the two to see if anyone ate you stuff.
- Get scanned. Keep the data on your credit card and try on all the clothes without going to the store. And the size will be right.
- Scan your room. The move the objects around in virtual space to see if the TV is better by the radiator after all.
I was going to say crash-scene investigation or high-definition 3D streetview, but that’s been done already by 3D laser Mapping
