The 3D Copypod is a 3d scan booth conceived by Beijing-based studio People’s Industrial Design Office that can instantly digitize subjects of a wide range of sizes. Objects are surrounded by a spherical array of over one hundred fixed focal length DSLR cameras. Each camera is attached to a node of the Hoberman-inspired, isokinetic structure. With minimal adjustment, the 3D Copypod can contract to scan small objects and expand large enough to scan a group of people.
Folding panels that are lit from the interior enclose the structure of the 3d Copypod to ensure a shadowless photography environment. Digital models are constructed from the photographic data to produce high resolution 3d prints. With the snap of a camera even subjects in motion can be captured in high quality and full color.
