Is There An App For That?: 3D Video Camera

Nope, there is no actual 3D video camera app.  Whilst there is an app called '3D Camera' it just displaces the image slightly and applies an RGB light filter to the displaced layers creating that effect you get in 3D Movies, viewable with 3D specs.  One way to kill a bit of time with your 3D movie pals I guess but not for techno-hipster futurologists like me.  Oh no, when I say 3D I really mean 3D.  


For example, take a photo and immediately render a perceptive perfect 3D wire frame of your environment.  You could then edit it, rebuild, recolour, resurface etc.  The killer application would be quantity surveying/architectural planning I guess, or redecorating your home, or trying before you buy, or creating interactive city guides, or 3D infographics, or 3D just about anything, humm...  A rudimentary iPhone app version, 'Art & Trace', exists for 2D images.  The missing link seems be the ultrasonic scanner (as pictured below).  That old chestnut I hear you cry.  Perhaps this could be the differentiator for the iPhone 5, it could be the iPhone 5-3D (no specs required).

Surly the clever folk at Apple could also enable it to capture moving image in 3D, editable on a frame by frame basis.  And add a holographic projector for playback so you can play back your pre-recorded reality in an instant.  Just plug your smartphone into your photorefactive polymer re-renderer and your off.  Or, just take a board German and stick him in a room with a Sony Kinect.
