ProFORMA: Probabilistic Feature-based On-line Rapid Model Acquisition

3D models have an extensive range of uses in computer vision, but most of the time, generating these models is really difficult and time consuming. A student from Cambridge University has desgined a technique that enable the real time creation of the 3D model of an object, just using a standard webcam!

At first, you put the object in front of the webcam so that the first draft will be generated. After, you will rotate the object in front of the camera to show each angle. The more rotations of the object you will make, the more accurate will be the model.

The best for you to understand this amazingly simple way of building 3D model is to watch this Youtube video!
