Trimensional iPhone App Scans Your Face in 3D, Then Lets You Print Your Ugly Mug

by Range

I’ve heard plenty about 3D printing, but this is probably the first iPhone app that will scan your face in 3D and allow you to render a 3D model of your face. It’s kind of amazing what the iPhone can do, isn’t it? The app is from Trimensional and it will cost you $1 (USD).

Trimensional describes the app as a 3D scanner for the iPhone, but for now it only works with faces. A recent update allows you to create an animated GIF file of the 3D model to share with friends. With a $5 in-app purchase, you can output the scan as a 3D model and then send it to a 3D printer (printing cost not included). While not a lot of people have access to one, it sure makes it interesting.

3D printing is one of the few forms of 3D technologies that I think is worthwhile. 3D screens aren’t really going to take off in my opinion, unless the 3D screens become like the Holodeck on the Starship Enterprise.
