Creating 3D Models From Photos Gets A Lot Faster

I’m still out of town so this will be brief. I have been following these technologies for a while now. I came across this video (H/T Engadget)

That is very cool stuff! What is important is the speed they are doing it. Why this matters to education has to do with animated movies. Right now a student can make a video of themselves and their friends but they can’t really do many special effects or animated characters. With simple creation of 3d models like this shows, it opens up a whole new area of student projects. Notice they are just using a laptop to do the processing? Smartphones next year will have the same power levels so this technology will be portable soon.

The other reason I follow it, is because this is a necessary technology for good augmented reality.
