Mobile 3D Scanner

The idea of this project is a mobile 3D scanner which can be integrated in a smartphone or a tablet. The scanner works through a device camera and will make it possible for private users to capture the world in 3D. No previous knowledge is required for that purpose, because the software provides instructions how the object can be digitally reproduced. The created image can be further used for games and 3D prints.


“The mobile 3D scanner is a very promising technology from ETH with thrilling use cases, such as for online shopping or 3D photos at the scene of an accident.”
