Nokia Lumia 920 used to create 3D scans

To create a 3D model Microsoft used to need a Kinect sensor, but as can be seen at around the 3 minute mark in this AllthingsD video, Microsoft Asia has shown off a method of creating 3D models by simply taking a series of pictures.

The images are uploaded for online processing, and the results sent down to the phone or connected PC.

Unfortunately Microsoft is still optimising the technology, so we will not be creating faithful 3D avatars right away, but hopefully this technology will make an appearance on our phones pretty soon.
