Embarcadero Names mimix 3D Profile Scanner Cool App for March
Technologies (a division of IDERA),
a leading provider of software solutions for application development,
today announced that the March 2017 winner of its Cool App contest is
mimix 3D Profile Scanner, a tool that enables users to make 3D
impressions using their webcam and PC monitor.
3D Profile Scanner Personal, which is available for free download,
uses a set of four black and white patterns, which are projected by a
computer screen while the camera captures the images of the user's face
or other object in front of the screen. The images are then processed to
reveal a detailed 3D impression. An Advanced version of mimix 3D Profile
Scanner is also available for free upon request.
"The impressions created through mimix 3D Profile Scanner are truly
fascinating and haunting pieces of art," said Jim McKeeth, chief
developer advocate and engineer at Embarcadero. "I love how it use the
existing monitor and webcam we all have in a new and creative way.
Giving developers this kind of flexibility is one of the amazing
features of Delphi (News - Alert)."
Under proper lighting conditions, mimix 3D Profile Scanner can capture
scenes and objects with incredible detail recovery. Users can create
cool effects by relighting the scene and create 3D prints of their
impressions. The official release version is still in the works so the
developers will continue to roll out frequent updates with added
functionality in the coming months.
"It's an honor to be recognized by the Embarcadero team for our work.
Delphi has been and still is our primary development tool," said mimix
3D Profile Scanner developer B.J. Rao. "mimix employs a highly improved
imaging technique algorithm that we have been developing for high-end 3D
scanning applications. Developing such algorithms can be complex with a
significant amount of testing and experimentation involved. Delphi
allowed us to do this as well as move into new directions. Delphi's rich
VCL allowed us to rapidly build an app with an intuitive an appealing
GUI. The icing on the cake!"
