Lynx A Camera Is The World’s First Point-and-shoot 3D Camera To Create 3D Content (video)
you enjoy creating 3D computer models and scenes, you might interested
in a new project which has launched over on the Kickstarter crowd
funding website this week called the Lynx A Camera.
The Lunx Camera has been designed to provide an easier way to create
scene, object and motion capture models, and immediately output the
files into formats such as PLY, OBJ, STL, XYZ, JPS, BVH, and more. Watch
the video after the jump to see it in action.
The new Lynx 3D camera has been created by Lynx Laboratories and claims
to be te very first point and shot 3D camera available on the market.
Once the Lynx is powered up you can then choose between scene modeling,
object modeling, and motion capture.
"The Lynx A camera is for anyone who wants or needs 3D content. Whether
you’re an architectural surveyor, VFX artist, video game engineer,
maker, or just think its cool, you’ll find the content produced by our
camera to be useful and easy to acquire.
It’s a light, plastic device shaped like a tablet. It has specialized,
front-mounted optics including a 640×480 color camera and a 3D sensor.
On the front, there’s a large, 14″ color LCD screen for an instant and
accurate view of imaging results. You can navigate your captured models
using joysticks, just like a videogame controller. The device has a
powerful graphics card for capture/render and high-capacity storage. The
battery is good for four hours. It fixes the annoying stuff (bad
battery life, small screens, costly storage) of conventional cameras.”
The Lynx A 3D camera project is currently over on the Kickstarter
website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to
production. So if you think Lunx A is something you could benefit from,
visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Lunx A
become a reality.
