New app turns iPhones into low-cost facial scanners

Digiteyezer’s surprisingly effective ‘how to’ video for iFace3D. Watch out for trees!

Digiteyezer has announced an English-language version of its iFace3D app, which turns the iPhone 3 and above into a low-cost facial scanning system.

The app, which also works with the iPad 2 and iPod Touch 4, requires the user to capture a smooth, 15-second pan around the subject’s face. The resulting geometry can then be exported in OBJ format, or for online use.

Since iFace3D’s original release in June, over 10,000 face models have been created over the company’s cloud servers. iFace3D 1.1 costs €2.99 (around $4.25).
