As 3D technology continues to improve, there is now the Makerbot Cyclops 3D Scanner which can turn any three-dimensional object into a digital design.

The technology behind this scanner is known as Structured Light 3D Scanning. This kit does take a bit of knowledge and effort for it to work, but the results are astounding as you see three-dimensional objects build digitally right before your eyes.

Implications - In the last few years, there has been an increased emphasis placed on 3-D products. Any company seeking to capitalize on one of the 21st century's biggest technological developments would be wise to associate themselves with 3-D movies, televisions, or products. By attaching the brand's name to this burgeoning movement, the company shows it is on the forefront of progressive technological products.
