MAKE subscriber Uros wrote to us to share the projects by some of the students in ENSCI, a product design school in Paris, France. I especially liked the design of the 3D scanner demonstrated in the video above. The scanner uses a laser pointer moving along a ring-shaped track around an object to find a set of 3D points that define the object’s shape. Be sure to check out all of the cool work by the students at ENSCI.
