3D research is still going string in the Media Lab.  Today we reviewed a really cool application from from Autodesk called 123D Catch.  The concept of the application is simple, basically you use your cameras photos to take panoramic shots of a room or subject, the photos are uploaded to a cloud somewhere then converted to 3D.  You get the resulting image back.  You can see an example at the front of this post of a 3D Todd.  While 3D Todd isn’t quite as good as the real Todd, the resulting image obtained with free software using an iPhone was still competitive with even $1000 scanners.
