3D Face Scanning App- Costs Less Than A Dollar

A new application has been developed for the iPhone that is essentially a 3D scanner app. The app is called Trimensional and takes four photos of your face using different lighting effects. The app then combines the four photos to create a 3D model. Once the model has captured the images, users can then enjoy a printed version of the scan using a 3D printer. Users should opt to take the images in a very dark room for the best results and set the iPhone’s screen brightness to maximum.

The 3D scanning application works for both the 4th Generation iPod Touch and the iPhone 4. You can purchase the app for just 99 cents, an affordable solution to the sometimes pricey cost of 3D scanners.
