3D is a new technology and new inventions are made almost daily and we see something new coming up every day. You had to buy expensive gadgets and software to capture an object in 3D but now you can do it with ordinary gadgets like your mobile phones. Microsoft researchers have developed an app that will allow you to capture pictures and see them through any angle you want.
If you want to look at a car in 3D then you will have to take a lot of pictures of it from different angles. The app will send the pictures to cloud server where they will be processed. The app will download a model of the picture which will give a 360 degree view of the object. You will have to take about 40 or more pictures for an object as big as a car but 25 pictures will be enough for a smaller object like a birthday cake.
The use of this technology is not limited to cell phones as you can take picture with ordinary cameras and can upload them to your computer. A browser plugin is available that will convert pictures into 3D and you will be able to have a 360 degree view on your computer as well.
3D products have raided the market and people are buying expensive televisions but the quality content is what is missing from the market. This facility will allow people to make their own content and have fun at the same time.
