photofly 3D Models from Photographs

Photogrammerty has been with us for as long as we’ve had cameras. Autodesk has taken it to its logical next step with Project Photofly. Using a standard point and shoot camera you can take a series of photos of an object, upload them to the cloud, and get a detailed 3D model back that can be manipulated with standard design software. There is other photogrammerty software out there, but this seems to be the most approachable, and the results seem to be of higher quality. You can even try it out for yourself. [Thanks, Daniel!]
