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.


Easy to use and incredibly efficient, the device is compact, has great battery life, and is a sleek in design. The Structure Sensor can capture images of any size, ranging from a distance of 40 centimeters to over 3.5 meters – the possibilities are endless.
