Seene is a mobile app that is able to create 3D images, without using a specialised camera. The company behind it has been named the UK’s most innovative company on display at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
We just discovered the article (which is already more then a few days old) and it really amazes us. It even reminds us of Project Tango, but then for photographs. The video explains how the app just takes a normal photo but also captures depth information. It can then build a depth map to create a sense of a 3D scene as the photo (displaying phone) is moved.
Besides the fun fact, there are also a lot of opportunities with for example 3D printing and online retail.
Their next objective with Seene is to capture a full 3D photograph where you’ll be able to actually look all the way around an object. Something we’ll definitely follow up!
