The Fraunhofer IOF is a newly prototyped 3D scanner that can offer impressively high-resolution digital models in less time than any technology before it. Created by researchers from Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering, the device can scan 36 1,000 x 1,000 pixel 3D images per second, effectively taking moving 3D models at the same frame rate as traditional 2D video cameras.

In terms of uses, the Fraunhofer IOF offers a completely new and exciting form of media. Imagine watching a film that looks virtually identical to real life and then being able to move one's point of view through the space however one wants. Since the Fraunhofer IOF takes 3D video, that degree of interaction and personalization in media is a real possibility.
