A few people seem to have got hold of the 2020 iPad Pro which is equipped with a LiDAR sensor. I’m interested in the accuracy of the sensor and it’s potential for 3D scanning.
Tim Field (Twitter: @nobbis) from Abound Labs (@AboundLabs) has posted a couple of demo videos of scanning on his Twitter feed:
It looks fairly low resolution, but it does seem that the more you scan an area, the more detail is resolved. In replies to the two tweets above he does suggest that this won’t be an effective method for scanning smaller objects.
I wonder if any Sketchfabbers have got their hands on one, and have had a chance to check out the accuracy of the new Measure app?
Interesting tech to watch.
