US Manufacturer 3D Systems (DDD) launches iSense, a 3D Scanner for the Apple iPad.
January 8, 2014: The recently on Kickstarter launched Structure Sensor 3D Scanner by Occipitial is now available in a new Version from 3D Systems. The snap-on 3D sensor for the iPad is comparable to the Microsoft Kinect Sensor and allows for 3D scanning and 3D sensoring but also other 3D applications like Augmented Reality. The device is being manufactured by Occipitial for 3D Systems and is said to use the same technology as the original Structure Sensor, however, will come in a more compact design.
iSense is snapped horizontally onto the iPad’s camera and connected to the lightning interface via cable. The original Structure Sensor is equipped with two cameras and two infrared LEDs, also allowing for night vision and other functions. The mobile 3D scanner comes with an Open Source software and an additional USB port.
June 25, 2014 – Update: iSense 3D scanner now available for pre-order
As of now iSense can be pre-ordered via 3D System’s Cubify website. The iPad Air version of the device including power cable is available for $499.
Delivery will start in the second half of July 2014.
