Missing link between Phone and 3D printer…Sorted!

Jeepers.. I have blogged before about ideas that in hind sight seem so obvious.. A “slap on the forehead” idea, I’d like to call them..

Look at the video embedded below. This guy has developed an app for the Iphone that converts images into 3D files so that you can 3D print them! Brilliant! Rudimentary but very clever indeed. The way he pulled off this feat is by using the Iphone screen as the light source. By varying the lighsource location and taking multiple pictures the software is able to deduct a 3D image out of these!

Wow.. Offer this man a grant or something to make sure that he’s part of finding a cure for some evil disease! We can sure use him!
