iPad owners can now create 3D objects from real life, thanks to a new app from visual technology developer Itseez.

Itseez has launched Itseez3D scanner application, designed to work with Occipital Structure Sensor, the world's first 3D sensor for mobile devices. Priced at $499, the Occipital Structure Sensor raised nearly $1.3 million on Kickstarter in Fall 2013. But to use it you need a software. As early supporters, Itseez3D became one of the first companies to use Occipital's Structure SDK.

The final result is the easy to use app that allows iPad users to turn people, furniture, shoes, toys and an endless variety of objects into realistic 3D models.

"We recognized the immense potential of Structure Sensor early on, and Itseez3D represents our efforts to weave advanced computer vision technology with this innovation," said Victor Erukhimov, Itseez CEO. "Essentially, we've made high quality 3D model creation faster, more accessible and more cost-effective than ever before. We're excited to find out how professional and recreational users will leverage this technology."

Using Itseez3D and Structure Sensor, iPad users can capture objects with high resolution color and structure data. The augmented reality technology guides users to capture the highest quality image possible. Itseez3D then delivers the data to the cloud and returns with a complete 3D model within minutes. Users can share the 3D model by email in .ply or .obj formats or on sketchfab.com; a platform to publish, share and embed interactive 3D content online.

Itseez3D allows professional users (i.e. engineers, designers, inventors and manufactures) to instantly capture 3D models of objects and people for import into CAD and for 3D printing. In the past, this required an expensive 3D scanning unit. But now anyone with an iPad and Structure Sensor can capture and share high resolution 3D models. Recreational users can also use this technology for home design projects and the fun of turning family and toys into 3D models.

While Structure Sensor will be required to scan images, users can still download Itseez3D to view sample models. Itseez3D plans to be made compatible with other 3D sensors for mobile devices as they become available.

The Itseez3D works with iPad Air or iPad 4, and is now available for free for a limited time in the iOS App Store.
