Occipital Structure Sensor 3D Scanner
£335.83 (ex. VAT)
The device uses a process known as structured light, in which an infrared laser projector casts a specific pixel pattern on the scene in front of it. The Structure Sensor's infrared sensor then records distortions in this dot pattern at VGA resolution as you move your iPad around the object you're scanning, creating a depth (3D) map of the scene and the objects in it. (The Structure Sensor's infrared detector was developed by PrimeSense, now owned by Apple, which designed the 3D sensor for Microsoft's Kinect.) The device also uses the iPad's camera, to record colour data.
There's a Lightning cable included that's just long enough to plug into the iPad's Lightning port. The Structure Sensor has its own internal battery and comes with a power adapter for charging.
No wires to limit movement, and no turntable to limit the size of what you can capture. A screen right in front of you to show what you scan, as you scan it. And the speed to capture high-quality, full-colour 3D scans in seconds instead of minutes.
Note: iPads are not included in any of our bundles.
The Occipital Wide Vision Lens increases the field of view of your iOS device's colour camera to 120º for enhancing your Structure Sensor's performance when colour-based tracking is in use. Precision design features five separate glass lens elements. Attaches via bayonet opening to Structure Sensor brackets for iPad (5th generation), iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro (10.5-inch, 9.7-inch, and 12.9-inch).
The Structure Sensor includes all you need to start using your Structure Sensor right out of the box. There are already apps built for the Structure Sensor in the App Store, and we've also provided a set of sample apps in the Structure SDK to show more of what's possible.
Occipital offers several free Structure Sensor-related apps for download from the App Store; most are designed to show off the device's ability to developers, for which the company provides an SDK. Although the company has focused on the device's use with the iPad, it can also be used with Android devices, and Occipital is offering open-source drivers, open CAD specs, and the hacker cable for use on other platforms.
The device's main app is called Structure. It offers three data streams to view: IR, which provides solely infrared data; Depth, which shows you a false-color view, with the nearest objects displayed as red, distant objects as blue, and objects of intermediate distance shown in varying shades of orange, yellow, and green based on their distance from the sensor, and tells you the distance (in centimeters) to whatever object is at the center of your screen; and Depth + Color, which combines true color with false color based on depth. In addition, it gives you information on firmware, serial number, and how much charge is left in the Structure Sensor's battery.
With the Structure app, seeing your surroundings on your tablet's screen as imaged through the virtual eyes of the Structure sensor plus iPad is a fascinating and surreal experience. It helps you appreciate the 3D-sensing capabilities of the Structure Sensor.
