Have you ever thought about creating your own 3D selfie? Well now you can with The Bellus 3D which is a high quality, easy-to-use and affordable face scanner which you can use alongside your smartphone. All you have to do is attach the Face Camera to your device and follow the onscreen directions. They will tell you to turn your head from left to right which will then build a realistic 3D model of your face.
You can then decide whether you want to share it with your friends on social media or create your own 3D print of your head. The product itself is a combination of two state-of-the-art technologies that measure around 500,000 3D points on your face. This means that the end result is a much higher-resolution and a lot more accurate and life like.
At the moment this product is only available to Android products. You connect the camera to your smartphone via the USB port of the smartphone. Then when you want to use the product the camera’s data gets sent to the mobile device to process the image. The detachable camera itself has it’s own detachable ring light, colour sensor, two infrared sensors and Two Infrared Laser structured-light projectors.
The product is available to purchase in early 2017 around February/March time however these are only available to developers or partners. Some ways that the technology can be used are by applying make up to the 3D model so you can see a realistic version of how it will look on yourself. You can create your own face to use in a video game or VR world. You could use the software to create a virtual copy of yourself to try clothes on so that you can see what they look like before you try them on.
The whole concept is a little strange as the result is so life like however, I think that this may become very popular over the next few years in all industries.
