Real time 3D scanning of your environment from your cell phone. At :35 seconds.

Creating 3D assets is going to become a whole lot more interesting.

Wow, thats amazing. Pretty soon we will live in a world where augmented reality is ubiquitous and indistinguishable from reality.

yeah but that aint photo real its just enough geometry to accurately overlay markers on your phone to point to things to sell you stuff not to give poor 3D artists a free LIDAR solution

Just one or 2 more iterations on the software/hardware design of things will give you solid 3D captures that an artist will be able to import and begin working with immediately.

Combine that with a forthcoming AI software algorithm that intelligently dissects these scans and retopologizes the polygonal models for you, including LOD levels.
