iPad 3D Scanning Peripheral

Another bit of news from CES that caught my eye – a iPad based portable 3D scanner from 3D Systems. The device is still vaporware (due out in the summer) but the company’s video sure gets the wheels turning in my head.

As the news item mentions $500 is not an inexpensive add on. However, if the ease of use and the quality of the output is even close to what is suggested by their video  it seems worth it. Until the wave of new scanners, coming soon, hit the street.

I had not heard about it but apparently they released a windows based scanner at the end of last year. The company video for the Sense is here.
