Can Your Mobile Device Understand The World In 3D?

I love being involved in magical stuff. One of our portfolio companies, Occipital, just announced their newest product, the Structure Sensor. It’s available for purchase right now on Kickstarter – they blew through their $100k goal in the first four hours of being up. But this is a “show don’t tell” classic, so take a look at the video below and prepare to have your mind blown.

So awesome. Jeff, Vikas, and team – you guys are amazing.

    I was JUST reading about this on Mashable. This is seriously the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. I’ve had the Occipital panorama app for some time now, and I thought that was cool.

    Every once in a while you see things that act as reminders that paradigms are shifting like crazy. This is most definitely one of those things.

    Goodness in the extreme — reinvigorates my tired, worn-out video game industry soul! May have trouble, the good kind, falling asleep tonight.

    Brad, there is a typo – under “Categories” you misspelled FRICKIN’ AWESOME! Will forward to several of my friends who are architects.

    This is truly amazing! Disruptive and one of those things that will matter to almost all of us. Love it!

    Hey Brad –

    Another one of your portfolio companies, Sketchfab, will deeply benefit from technology like this as well. We’ll be able to display those awesome 3D scans seamlessly, and once the tech is literally in people’s hands this kind of sharing will be super important and popular

    Very cool tech. However, this “show-not-tell” video is about 95% people talking and only 5% showing. Morpheus could totally have told Neo what the Matrix is, and you could have told us what Structure Sensor does, perhaps with one photo.
