3D Scan Yourself into Your Favorite Games with Just a Smartphone

by • March 17, 2016 • No Comments

The Zurich-based desktop vision startup Dacuda hit the 3D scanning scene with durablity after which successfully launching a Kickstarter back in 2014 for the world’s initially wireless, pocket-sized 3D scanner. Since and so, Dacuda has partnered with photogrammetric 3D scanning pioneers Stramba to bring 3D scanning apps to the smartphone. Now, Dacuda is bringing their smartphone scanning capabilities to the next level, and have just revealed the latest development of their patented SLAM Scan 3D Engine, a robotics algorithm able-bodied to reconstruct 3D objects in real-time via smartphone.


Dacuda has just revealed which, now, a new smartphone-based software development kit can allow gamers to scan their faces directly into their video games. Making use of just a smartphone with Dacuda’s SLAM Scan 3D Engine, users can turn it into a photorealistic avatar by scanning their faces in real-time. This innovation stands to greatly benefit primary game developers such as EA Sports, who can allow gamers to manufacture their own detailed avatar for next iterations of the FIFA or NBA 2K series. It pretty appears possible which Dacuda can acquire access to games like these as, in their partnership with Staramba, their innovation was utilized to capture and turn it into 3D models of famous soccer players. Dacuda’s CEO, Peter Wiegand, spoke to PSFK of their scanning innovation as an low-cost-bodied and convenient scanning version.


“Today, generating 3D content is limited to expensive and cumbersome innovation,”Weigand said. “Our innovation allows for you to scan your face in real-time to generate a high high end 3D avatar of by yourself, all of your mobile device.”

But which’s not the just development which Dacuda has created to their SDK; it’s in addition becoming additional and additional compatible with 3D printing. With the Dacuda SDK, users can in addition 3D print figurines of themselves or other objects captured by their smartphones. There are other applications for their innovation as well, such as high-precision image stitching and global image map optimization in real-time. Their SLAM Scan 3D Engine innovation is able-bodied to system images of a camera and accurately determine the positioning of the image content inside the 3D space, forming a ‘3D point cloud’ of the selected object or subject.

According to Dacuda, the SLAM Scan innovation is utilized on over one million devices may already, and has a number of various application areas. As additional and additional individuals adapt to having direct access to 3D scanning innovation on their smartphone, which number just stands to go higher and higher.
