High-Precision 3D Scanning on Smartphone

3dscanner

Green lasers are cool, especially when they turn your smartphone into a highly accurate and affordable 3D scanner

The most unique feature of the eora 3D scanner is its green laser. Most consumer 3D scanners use a red laser, but digital camera CMOS sensors (like our eyes) are twice as sensitive to the green spectrum as they are to red. (It’s how we evolved to better spot predators in the brush.) This means you can scan in a variety of lightning conditions, even outdoors.

A green laser costs almost three times as much as a standard red laser. But when you have a smartphone that does all the heavy lifting, it allows us to save cost on the camera and processor and instead invest more in other areas like the laser optics and powerful algorithms for the app.

Bluetooth Turntable

Unlike other 3D laser scanners, eora doesn’t require a turntable (because the app stitches together multiple scans from various angles to create a full model). Turntables can make scanning smaller objects easier, however, it comes with an optional companion wireless turntable that connects to eora via Bluetooth.

Compatible with both Android and ios
