The Structure sensor by Occipital

A company called Occipital makes a 3D sensor called “Structure.” The sensor is designed for mechanical attachment and IO connection to an iPad, but they sell a USB “hacker cable” that allows for connection to a computer or other device. The sensor bundle with hacker cable is selling for $499.

The technology looks pretty neat. They use lasers and imagers to 3D scan objects and environments, and they provide an SDK as well to grab and process the data.
