Among a big bunch of gadgets seen at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, a gadget called Bellus3D Face Camera pro was also showcased, which caught a lot of eyes. The gadget was noticed for its functionality to scan 3D images of your face in mere seconds. The device is launching for developers this year and can be used for VR to medical applications.
It is built by a company named Bellus3D and plugs into an Android phone. Using built-in cameras, will scan your face and show you an exact replica of yourself. Kind of creepy, but it might one day have some real world uses.
Basically, the Face Camera Pro is designed for self-scanning. Simply attach the Face Camera Pro to a smartphone or a tablet, turn your head from left to right, and start creating amazingly realistic 3D face models in seconds.
The company announced that it is working with partners and developers so that its technology might one day be used to provide realistic 3D images of people inside VR, for medical purposes and potentially for shopping.
Bellus3D Face Camera Pro is only available for developers now and production and delivery is expected to begin in Q1 2018.
