Had the pleasure of attending the inaugural meeting of the San Francisco Reality Computing Meetup Group on Monday. I saw some mind-blowing demos from Autodesk and Matterport, such as projects Autodesk took part in to:
- CT scan and image an Egyptian mummy,
- Use photogrammetry to scan and share models of the Leakey skull collection at the African Fossils project,
- Fly an inexpensive quadcopter drone (DJI Phantom and GoPro) to capture a model of one of the gunnery batteries on the Marin Headlands in enough detail to hand off to a planner or architect.
Plus, Hans at Autodesk was kind enough to scan this 3D model of me, using a Structure Sensor camera.
