Students show off 3D-mapping laser backpack

Posted on Friday, August 13 2010 @ 05:05:46 CEST by


Engadget UC Berkeley students have developed a high-tech backpack that captures image of building interiors, which can then be converted into a 3D model:
Total protonic reversal? Small price to pay for an instantaneous 3D scan of a building's interior. That's what the backpack pictured above delivers, a project from UC Berkeley students and faculty Matthew Carlberg, Avideh Zakhor, John Kua, and George Chen. The pack contains a suite of laser scanners and positional sensors that enable it to capture images of building interiors as a fleshy assistant roams their halls. Those images can then be automatically pieced back together to create a 3D representation.
