US: A new technology from the Microsoft Research Lab allows 3D scanning to be done from your smartphone, with no additional hardware needed. Microsoft has developed this app, called MobileFusion, which allows you to walk around an object and scan it to your phone. It first captures the RGB data in an environment, then takes a stereo depth map as you make your way around an item. Once a scan is complete, its rendered immediately, so users can see if they got the 3D image they desire.
