Researchers at Advanced Industrial Science and Technology institute (AIST) in Hiroshima, Japan are using only a camera and projector to measuring objects in 3D.

"With this method, patterned light is projected onto the object, and the pattern images captured by the camera are processed to measure it's 3D shape. Because the 3D shape can be measured from a single image, this method can also be used with a high-speed camera."

The measurement is very precise with tolerance just 1-2mm. It is expected that data obtained by this measurement method could be used in video games and to analyze how athletes move.

Researchers want to keep increasing the range of things that can be measured, and hopefully in the future it can be used to determine how much building would shake in an earthquake.
