Sure, we’ve all seen the demos of Oculus Rift, but for only a few hundred bucks, you can turn your iPad into a 3D-scanning, augmented-reality powerhouse. This small device by San Fran-based Occipital, called the Structure Sensor, snaps onto your iPad and generates a real-time 3D scan, while mapping the image from the iPad camera to create photo-real scans. What can you do with it? Precisely measure every corner of a room by just spinning around. Play hyper-real augmented reality games. Scan any object as a 3D model – including yourself. Did someone say “personalized bobblehead?”
