I love using my hands and brain in a lot of projects. Currently I live and work in New York City, enthusiastic about Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies. With PandoraReality.com, we develop AR experiences for mobile devices and Hololens. We also develop VR experiences for Google Cardboard, Oculus, Gear VR, HTC Vive. Can’t wait to start playing on Magic Leap and Meta 2.
With KabaQ.io(Glimpse Group), we 3D scan food items and present them through augmented reality technology

Using Real Life Objects in Virtual and Augmented Reality – Photogrammetry and 3D Scanning

As hardware manufacturers enable content developers to push limits, we hear more and more uses of virtual and augmented reality technologies in our daily lives. On content creation side of the business 3D artists are working on creating CGI(computer generated imagery) to create scenarios for virtual and augmented reality applications. But designing models on computer isn’t the only solution. By using photogrammetry or 3d scanners we can convert any real life object to a CGI 3D model which enables us to work on virtual and augmented reality environments.

Photogrammetry: After taking 360 pictures around the objects, you can create point cloud data with textures than build a mesh using related software.

3D Scanners: Until recently, 3D scanners have been mainly used for industrial and professional applications like scanning an architectural site or creating digital models for film. The technology is becoming more advanced and accurate than ever, but at the same time, it is also becoming much cheaper—meaning that consumers can now take advantage of cheap, reliable 3D scanners and use them to expand their Virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D printing possibilities.
