The Revopoint POP 3D scanner is making waves in tech
A Kickstarter campaign for the brand new Revopoint POP 3D scanner recently raised over US$2 million from over 5,700 backers in a history-making campaign on the crowd-funding platform. Other 3D scanners have done well on Kickstarter before, though none quite like this.
The Revopoint POP 3D scanner has the potential to revolutionise consumer scanning. This high-precision scanner, which is capable of accuracy within 0.3mm as well as being compact and portable, offers consumers an affordable way to experience high-quality 3D scanning at home. It's also completely safe, using infrared light technology to scan 3D objects both in the home and outside it.
The scanner was developed by Revopoint, in Shenzhen, and is compatible with other consumer products on the market, easily plugging into smartphones, tablets, and laptops for fast, convenient scanning on the go.
A representative of Isunshine Ltd. commented on the Revopoint POP 3D: "This scanner has been in development for years, and Revopoint has patented the microstructure light technology used in the Revopoint POP 3D scanner, which is going to mean that other companies can't simply copy the technology used. It's a very exciting development in consumer tech and one that makes effective 3D scanning much more accessible to everyone."
The implications of the Revopoint POP 3D are far-reaching; this isn't just a scanner to be used in the home. Schools, colleges, and universities can use the Revopoint POP 3D to create accurate 3D models in graphic design and art courses, being both affordable and portable for use across campuses.
Likewise, the scanner will no doubt prove invaluable in the fields of archaeology and cataloguing, where affordable, accurate 3D scanners mean that rare artefacts can be scanned and recreated for further study and replication.
While the Revopoint POP 3D scanner is already incredibly popular, Revopoint has plans to innovate further models in 2021 and beyond which will hopefully mean that consumers will have access to even more precision and portability over the coming years.
