Microsoft MobileFusion: Turns Your Phone Into a 3D Scanner

MobileFusion is a new Microsoft Research project that allows any phone to capture high-quality 3D images, with the same ease as taking a snapshot.
Peter Ondruska, a Ph.D. candidate at Oxford University who worked on the project while he was an intern at Microsoft Research, explains “What this system effectively allows us to do is to take something similar to a picture, but it’s a full 3D object.”
The MobileFusion system doesn’t require extra hardware, or an Internet connection, to work. That makes it very practical.
