Epic’s new RealityScan app converts smartphone images into 3D models
Epic Games has introduced a new smartphone software that uses a series of smartphone images to create 3D models of objects. The concept is that you can use the software RealityScan to scan an object in the real world — for example, a chair — and then include the scan into your game or project.
How it works is demonstrated in the video at the top of this piece, which shows someone scanning a brown chair and creating what appears to be a constructed 3D model. The software is presently available via Apple’s TestFlight platform in a first-come, first-served beta that will be limited to 10,000 people.
