MatterPort, a startup from Silicon Valley unveiled their new 3D scanner at the Y-Combinator’s Bi-Annual Demo Day. What makes this compact scanner so special is that no precision is needed. With a wave of the hand, the device smartly scans the environment and understands the shapes, features, and placement of everything it scans.
The canner basically allows users to point the hand held gun and do instantaneous scan-to-model of their surrounding environment.
“We turn reality into 3D models and our scanner is 20 times faster and 18 times cheaper than any other tool on the market,” says Matterport co-founder Michael Beebe, “We are creating fundamentally new technology, like the steam engine or the car.”
