The 'eora 3D' is an innovative new design that turns your smartphone into a highly accurate and affordable 3D scanner.

This highly precise 3D scanner is actually completely powered by a smartphone, and allows users to capture everyday objects and turn them into highly accurate 3D models. With this technology, hopefully 3D printing and the different innovations that result from it will become even more accessible to the general public.

The erora 3D is also highly portable and easy to use as well. With a scan range of one meter in length, this scanner uses a highly accurate green laser to capture full color models down to the an unprecedented sub-100 microns. A small turntable rotates the object being scanned so a complete 360-degree rendering can be captured and stored on your smartphone.
