alt.CES: DIY 3D scanners roundup

I really like the new 3D desktop scanner by RealView. They have 3 models available. Unfortunately there isn’t any word on price, but I am guessing they aren’t cheap.

We don’t see too many 3D scanners ’round these parts, so we’ll be excited to hit RealView 3D’s booth at CES and see what all the fuss is about. The RealView 360⁰ 3D Desktop Scanner is being billed as the world’s first desktop scanner capable of capturing objects in their full 360⁰ topographic glory, suitable for scanning mugs, model space ships, D&D figurines, and whatever else fits on its base.
