Advances in 3D Imaging

New tech created by researchers from The Johns Hopkins University and Ben-Gurion University in Israel may greatly simplify 3D imaging of real objects. The FINCH technology (standing for Fresnel INcoherent Correlation Holography) uses a specialized arrangement of filters, lights and cameras to capture 3D information without having to scan individual planes of an object. While today they can scan still objects, they are working on the ability to 3D scan moving objects.

If successful, FINCH may enable the creation of vast online repositories of all manner of objects.
