For those who are fascinated by photography, Bevel will be a leap further. This is a simple device which lets you take 3D images conveniently. Bevel can be attached , which comes with a 3D camera, to the 3.5 mm audio jack of his smartphone running on iOS or Android. And wella! A 3D photograph is on its way.
Once you have plugged in the device, take a photograph using the companion app. The laser sight in the device allows it to measure the space between the object or person being scanned and the camera to make a full depth map. And what you get does not just look like a 3D image but comes with definite depth information, which is a necessity for augmented reality applications and 3D modeling.
These photographs can be shared like normal pictures on social networking sites and other channels. This device can be charged using a Micro-usb port.
The Bevel would cost around $ 49 and will come with a calibration card, a charging cable and membership with Cashew. This is basically a crowdfunded project and has already reached $100,000 of funds against the set target of $200,000 with 25 more days to go. There is no doubt that it will reach its goal but the question is, will it be as useful in the future as it seems to be?
The fact that it is a cool concept available at a nominal price is a positive sign for its chance at sustainability.
