Interesting 3D Photo app

I can’t readily pronounce it “endlessly useful,” but 3D Photo‘s ability to map a live camera feed onto 3D shapes is rather cool:


It can be hard to take tablet hardware, which is largely designed for low-power media consumption & gaming, and make it perform well for general-purpose imaging operations. Lately I’ve taken to joking that, “Well, my year-old iPad can run a beautiful 3D pinball game fullscreen at 30+ FPS, so maybe we should let people draw with friggin’ 3D pinballs, because apparently those can be made to go fast.” Look for Adobe Avian AngerPaint™, coming soon to an app store near you!

    Hmm… if you simply add the ability to take topological measurements using ultrasound and walk all around the structure, capturing surface information along with the image data, you could have a great tool for…


    Ok, but you gotta admit it would be killer cool.

    Nice 3D app you got there!
    Mapping photos into 3D shapes is something new for Iphoners like me. Definitely will be using this one, lets say I wanna experiment with my new photos. ;)

    Thanks John!

    Seems a bit like finger candy to me.
