Today 3D Systems announced their latest product, the Sense 3D Scanner. Keith Ozar from 3D Systems described the new hand-held 3D scanner as “physical photography.”

The Sense can easily scan objects as large as 10’x 10’x 10′ or high resolution scans as close as 20″ away. Best of all the entire system costs $399 and will be in hundreds of Staples stores starting on November 18, 2013.
