This brings me to the next contender in the Embarcadero Cool App Contest is the Mimix 3D Profile Scanner by intricad. It uses a really cool technique to capture a 3D impression with only your monitor and a standard webcam.
mimix 3D Profile Scanner Personal allows you to make 3D impressions using your webcam and PC monitor screen. mimix 3D Profile Scanner Personal uses a set of 4 black and white patterns which are projected by your computer screen while your camera captures the images of your face in front of the screen. The images are then processed to reveal a 3D impression.
Under proper lighting conditions mimix 3D can capture scenes and objects with incredible detail recovery.
Create cool effects by relighting the scene or 3D print your impression.
It is built for Windows using Delphi, VCL, TMS components, Eurekalog and ShellBrowser.
Check out the video or download the scanner for yourself!

WOW! Great app.
I like the clever way of lighting the scanned object from four sizes just by using four different screen patterns displayed on your monitor.
Now imagine if this app would be extended so that it can control one of those mini-usb led lamps that you can plug in to your mobile phone. That would give you the ability to scan object using your mobile phone and could lead even to better results as you would be able to use that mini-usb led lamp to illuminate object from even more directions.
Any way this app has lots of potential and thus I think it deserves to win the contest
Thanks for your comments.
We did imagine that 🙂
See our old kickstarter video from 2012 for the PhoneScope3D
Mimix is an experimental app which uses a new image processing algorithm that we developed. Not surprisingly we use Delphi to prototype and develop our algorithms and apps.
