As reported by NanoWerk, on Friday, January 31, 2014, Back in 2011 Viztu Technologies released a free online software. This innovation led to a rapidly rising commercial enterprise that concluded with Viztu’s sale to a tech giant, which is now bringing the technology to the public worldwide.

The Viztu flagship website service, Hypr3D that can produce a digital 3D model of the object or scene from a 2D photo or even a video that user uploaded. Users can be snapped pictures using digital cameras, smartphones or webcams.

"We provide the ease of scanning of camera they have," said Thomas Milnes PhD'13, Chief Technology Officer of Viztu Technologies. He developed the Hypr3D software as part of his MIT dissertation.

Furthermore, the users only need a digital camera, smartphone and internet access for a few minutes to build the 3D models. Then, the digital 3D objects can be printed in a 3D printer.

Less than a year after the launch Hypr3D, Viztu which was also founded by Milnes and CEO Michael 'Ash' Martin MBA’10 received positive responses from users. Reportedly, currently the Hypr3D used by a tens of thousands of people.

But this time the service has been transferred to the 'Cubify Capture' (Hypr3D is now Cubify Capture). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CUBIFY CAPTURE | NANOWERK]
