3D printing is the next black! But in order to be able to print in 3D, you need some to somehow map the object’s detailed information!
Here’s where the Occipital Structure Sensor comes into the game! The Structure is an iPad addon which, once mounted, gives your favorite tablet 3D scanning superpowers!
Here are some technical specs: the Structure is powered by it’s own internal battery which allows about 4 hours of continuous usage; it has an anodized aluminum chassis which confers it a beautiful exterior as well as thermal core that keeps the precision optics inside at an optimal temperature; dual infrared LED’s to improve vision in low light.

The Structure sensor can make room captures and can automatically calculate distance (I can only imagine how real estate agents and interior designers will go crazy about this) as well as scan object which can be reproduced/printed via 3D printers (compatible with Shapeways.com 3D printing).
The 3D scanner was designed for full compatibility with iPvad 4th generation (via the Lightning connector) but cam also work on other iOS devices as well as on Android, Linux, Windows and osX (“Hacker” package available to order) and is available for pre-order after a successful Kickstarter campaign which helped the manufacturer raise 1.3 million USD.
