3D printing is the present and the future. These days most of us have heard of 3D printers that can make small objects. More sophisticated ones are coming out all the time. The Structure Sensor is not a 3D printer but a scanner. It is what you can use to create 3D models of the objects all around you. With the Structured Sensor attached to your mobile device, you can walk around and capture objects in digital form.
Once you have captured 3D models, you can import them into CAD and start 3D printing. Structure has something for developers too. You can build mobile applications that interact with the 3D world. The Structure Sensor is battery powered and will last you up to 4 hours of active use and 1000+ hours of standby. It has dual infrared LEDs that give your iPad night vision.
The Structure Sensor sounds amazing and almost too good to be true. That explains why the project has crushed funding expectations on Kickstarter. Whether you are into 3D scanning, printing, or augmented reality, the Structured Sensor has something for you. You can still support the team behind this project on Kickstarter.
