WGAN-TV Live at 5: How to Shoot/Create Free InsideMaps 3D Tours with iPhone DanSmigrod 3 11 hoursDanSmigrod (23715): @Wingman Yes. Will do! Dan
CNET: Lidar on the iPhone 12 Pro: What it can do now, and why it matters... DanSmigrod 2 4 daystoddwaddington (306): Thanks for sharing @DanSmigrod. I have the 2020 11" iPad Pro. I believe it has the same Lidar technology but wanted to confirm with anyone who might know. I have read that it does but they never mention the iPad Pro 2020 when talking about the iPhone 12 tech. I was just wondering if the iPad Pro was an earlier chip or other.
InsideMaps + iPhone 12Pro + Rotator = 3D Tours for Free (Early Access) DanSmigrod 9 4 daysWingman (1510): If a rotator is decent and can support an Ipad weight why not. However nobody has ever done rotators for tablets. At Least I have never seen any. Plenty for smartphones though and they are quite cheap.Probably most of them are up to 50-60USD

R&D New York Times (LiDar?) oshioyi 2 27 daysTosolini (3479): This is such a beautiful, interactive, yet linear storytelling. Thanks for sharing it. I'm guessing that for the photogrammetry part they used a DSLR camera and a software like Agisoft Photoscan (renamed as Metashape) or Reality Capture. The quality is definitely superior than what you can attain using the Apple Lidar. I did some tests with various iPad Pro apps and the results are promising, but not photogrammetry quality. Yet, for something...

Capture 3D mesh (like LiDAR point cloud) with imagery (like Matterport) oshioyi 9 5 monthsEaglePrecision (116): You should look for someone who is a 3D model service provider (Reality Capture or Documentation Specialist) and specializes in either Pix4D or Agisoft Metashape software. Both vendors offer 3D model photogrammetry software that can stitch a very accurate model from carefully taken photographs. Pix4D just came out with Pix4D Catch which makes use of the iPad Pro Lidar capability to get accurate depth information. Metashape will take photo...

Canvas app now supports Ipad Pro 2020 built in LiDAR Wingman 1 5 monthsWingman (1510): For everybody who has an Ipad Pro 2020 the current version of Canvas that is known for using it with an occipital structure sensor now supports built in an Ipad LiDAR. I could not do much though as they seem to want some fee for processing your scanning but may be there is some credit given somewhere just to try it. Here is news about it

Testing Apple iPad Pro (2020) Wingman 28 7 monthsWingman (1510): It must be their version called Mark I. They do say it does not work in Sunlight but with Mark II they say it works. Anyway with GeoCV system you look better as it is modular. If GeoCV was around I believe they could make some updates to swap their Mark I with Mark II.

Question of the Day: How does the new Intel LiDAR Camera compare to Pro2? DanSmigrod 3 1 yearOboldyrev (200): Also, the field of vew is narrower. May have to rotate it more to accomplish full 360 and may even have to swing it up and down for sphere

Matterport High-End LiDAR Camera Competitor? DanSmigrod Jump to first page40Jump to last page 3 yearsBill (285): It sure does sound like Effortless Very unusual approach to try to convince investors in asking consumers to invest in something that may or may not happen. I'd look for other investors. The mere fact Matterport has such a large market share would surely insure lesser risk if any competitor comes out with more for less. And IMO the company should not be hiding behind anonymous...
