Intel’s RealSense technology looks to have found a home in XYZprinting’s new handheld 3D scanner concept.
The sleek-looking bit of kit has been announced complete with render, as XYZprinting hope to launch it in Spring next year, with a proposed price of around £200.
The device uses Intel’s RealSense 3D depth-sensing camera technology, expected to be similar to those shipped in laptops, to produce accurate, full colour images to 1mm accuracy.
Fully integrated with XYZprinting’s range of affordable 3D printers, the system should make for a low cost method of getting from scan to print quickly.
“Making 3D printing technology affordable and approachable has been XYZprinting’s biggest goal,” said XYZprinting CEO Simon Shen.
“The XYZ Handheld Scanner will, once again, break down the barriers for users that don’t know how to create 3D models, and unlock countless possibilities to replicate a wide variety of objects using 3D printing technology.”
