There’s an ominous web page published by Replica Labs, describing something called “Rendor”. It seems to be a 3D scanning app.
We don’t know much other than the product is hidden at this time, although we understand that beta testers will be allowed into the app soon (in fact, you can sign up to be a tester on their web page.) Here’s what we do know:
- The app will be available for iOS and Android platforms and will make use of a cloud service to do the heavy processing required to interpret scans
- 3D models will be delivered in minutes by email once uploaded
- Objects must be scanned on a “scanning grid” that you print out
That’s about all we know at this point. However, because of the use of the printed grid, we suspect Rendor can scan objects that fit on the grid only, and not larger objects, or objects that you can’t lift to place on a grid.
For now, we’re anxiously waiting to get our hands on Rendor.
