Did you ever think the world could be captured in 3D images? Well, the engineers at Occipital did and they are in the process of displaying the world as you know it in a whole new dimension. The Structure Sensor was designed to give mobile devices the ability to capture and process images to reflect proportionate virtual replicas.

The project is currently featured on Kickstarter, which is new way to fund creative projects. With over 600 backers after the initial release of the idea, Occipital is confident their project will change the way augmented space is seen.

While 3D sensors are not something new to the tech world, Structure Sensor was designed from the ground up to better fit the usages of mobile devices. To name a few applications, 3D mapping, body scanning, virtual gaming realities can all be made possible with the device.
