The Lynx A is a point-and-shoot 3D camera developed by Austin-based Lynx Laboratories, that aims to make capturing and producing models more accessible. The easy-to-use, tablet-shaped device has specialized, front-mounted optics including a 640×480 color camera and a 3D sensor.

It produces 3D models of whatever you point it at, which can then be viewed instantly on the 14″ color LCD screen. Captured models can be navigated using joysticks, and the device has four hours battery life and a powerful graphics card for capturing, as well as high-capacity storage.

Point-And-Shoot Camera Produces 3D Models

The Lynx A has three features: scene modeling, object modeling, and motion capture. Once you’ve selected one from the main screen, it will start instantly. Scene modeling lets you scan the surfaces around you and watch a 3D model get painted in the viewfinder.

Object modeling enables you to walk around an object and see a 3D model being slowly carved out. With motion capture, you point the camera at a subject, press record, and see the results on-screen as they move around.

The Lynx A is currently raising funds on Kickstarter and you can get your hands on one for a pledge of at least $1,799. Check out the campaign video below:
