The new technology could work for getting back expensive chinaware, denture sets, any object in the house
Three-dimensional images (3D) have always fascinated people. In such a scenario, the development of a new technology in the form of a camera that uses a 3D Sweep Panorama function to capture, generate images from a single sensor/lens digital camera has created a ripple.
The 3D image is then sent to a printing machine that recreates the photographed object just as it is, using polymer plastic dispensed through a tiny tube and works layer by layer to come up with an exact copy. This technology is said to have been developed by a California-based Hyderabadi Balaji Tammabattula, all in a span of just a few minutes.
Speaking to The Hindu over phone from California on Sunday, he said the new technology could work for getting back expensive chinaware, denture sets, any object in the house, rare parts of vintage automobiles. The possibilities were virtually endless, he said.
Proffering a typical example, he goes on to add that the 3D image capture and printing technology he has developed, he says if a person loses a ear in an accident, an exact artificial replica could be generated in no time, of the same texture, size and shape that could be implanted later.
