The Armada is a phone-sized scanner concept that would provide a new tool for creative projects.

Armada is a simple, conceptual 3D scanner developed by designers Isaac Blankensmith and Kyle DeHovitz who wanted to be able to rapidly capture sources of inspiration in an editable 3D format. The small and portable scanner was built so that anyone can create high-quality 3D models of objects via their smartphone.

When you switch Armada on, it syncs with your smartphone over Bluetooth. Then the streamlined 3D capture process begins when you press the start button, utilizing a cross-beam laser and two cameras angles to track its position. This triangulation provides the three necessary reference points needed for a cloud-point to form.

While scanning, thousands of cloud-points are created, which merge and stitch together into polygons, resulting in a 3D model. Once the process is complete, Armada creates an STP file in real-time on your phone, which can be opened and edited in any 3D modeling software. Check out the short promo video for the scanner below:
