Matterport Announces AI Capabilities that Will Turn Smartphones into 3D Capture Devices

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Matterport, the leading spatial data company focused on digitizing and indexing the built world, announced today its latest breakthrough, Matterport 3D Capture for Smartphones, which will turn consumer smartphones into 3D capture devices. This capability, which was demonstrated for the first time today at an invite-only event at San Francisco's most exclusive property – Residence 950 [Matterport 3D Tour of $40,500,000 House for Sale] – will support iPhone and Android devices. The first iPhone version is expected to be available in beta by the end of the year.

Matterport's visionary CEO RJ Pittman explained at the gathering of technology and business leaders that this new innovation is made possible by advancements in Cortex, Matterport's AI-powered image-processing technology. Cortex features three-dimensional intelligence that can understand objects, rooms and the detailed characteristics of any physical space. The technology is trained on Matterport's industry-leading dataset that is comprised of billions of 3D data points and can construct stunning 3D digital twins from two-dimensional images.

"Matterport aims to achieve full camera and capture ubiquity that will allow us to digitize the entire built world," Pittman stated. "Creating a 3D solution compatible with smartphones is a huge step towards reaching that goal, allowing the broader community of billions of iPhone and Android users to access the capabilities of our technology."

Pittman was joined at Thursday's event by real estate moguls and stars of Bravo TV's Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, Josh and Matthew Altman.

"Matterport's 3D technology is a game-changer for our business, especially for marketing elite homes like 950 Lombard Street – an exceptional property in one of San Francisco's most desirable neighborhoods," said Josh Altman. "Matterport's cutting-edge technology makes it possible for a potential luxury homebuyer – sipping coffee halfway across the globe – to experience this gorgeous home in a realistic and immersive way. This is a great way to attract busy and out-of-town buyers!"

Pittman added: "The digital transformation of the built world will fundamentally change the way people interact with buildings and the physical world around them. Matterport's 3D capture is foundational to this transformation because our unique technology is creating the data layer on which businesses and individuals can interoperate across industries."

In addition to unveiling 3D capture for smartphones, Matterport also announced a new spatial awareness functionality that enables users to interactively measure and share the dimensions of any space – including floor plans, doorways, windows and walls – automatically. This powerful feature strengthens the impact of Matterport 3D experiences across applications and industries, from helping prospective homebuyers know whether furniture will fit in a space, to making it easier for contractors to more accurately and efficiently document dimensions during the construction or renovation process.

Matterport's new spatial data features were announced and demonstrated alongside planned updates to the company's flagship app and cloud services, which include:

✓ Android compatibility for the Matterport Capture app, enabling anyone with an Android device to scan a space when connected to a compatible camera.
✓ The announcement of a planned developer program and updated SDK, offering extended functionality and robust developer APIs.

I believe the garage portion was scanned with the Matterport (alpha) Android app.

Here is the portion of the presentation (full transcript) by Matterport CEO RJ Pittman where he describes how the (alpha) Matterport Capture App (Android) was used to scan the garage portion of the space:

---

The third announcement that I think is the one that still blows me away, and I work for this company, all of that experience that you just saw, not going to pull through Greg's pretty wall here into the garage, the model of that garage and the Tesla, the Ferrari and the Lambo, were all captured not with a Pro 2, not with a Leica, not with these 360 cameras. Wait for it. They're captured with this, a smartphone that any of you have in your hand.

This is not a trick smartphone. It's not one that we specially made. It's a big part of the announcement. This is really hard to do. It's so hard to do that in fact, we thought it was a couple years away.

But it's a real testament to how good the [Matterport] Cortex, the AI software under the hood is getting, and also how good our engineers are. Because this is such a small camera with a narrow field of view. And so many people have tried to do this before with just not exacting results.

And if it's not good enough for the built world, we're not going to shift it. But it was so good that we brought it in here and we were able to create something, literally by standing around and capturing it. It's so easy to use. I'd like to show it to you. It's just like taking a photo, for Beta, call me next quarter (1Q2020). It's just like taking a photo, connect the dots.

This was my Head of Design, Dave Lippman, scanning this very counter. This is a tough one for a small, little phone camera to get such a voluminous space and get it right. Look what he's doing.

He's just going around grabbing the walls, Matterport is stitching it together. And it gets you what's called a photosphere. You put three or four photospheres together, which is exactly what Dave did, and this is Matterport's smartphone capture in a two-story, voluminous, half-court basketball space, shot in a matter of minutes.

I do not understand. Can you ask your question a different way?
