Maybe we already have bionic eyes?
As I was typing up the last post I recalled Clothbot’s recent submission to Thingiverse. While at the Royal Ontario Museum he took about 15 photos of a protoceratops fossilized skeleton on display. Once home he passed the photos through My3DScanner.com and ended up with a 3D model of the dinosaur. Clothbot pointed out to me that proper lighting is key – only 12 of the 15 photos were acceptable. Avoiding too many shadows or a washed out background is important to getting a final model that won’t have holes in it.
So, it would seem anyone with a camera phone and an internet connection might just be carrying around their own bionic eyes. What I’m dying to see is a model uploaded to Thingiverse that was created by mounting a camera on a quadrocopter, taking a photo or video, and turning a large landmark into a 3D model.
