There’s very few times now that a video or camera app new on the market makes us stop in our tracks and be worthy enough to share. The usual case of Instagram-esque filters or Photoshop-esque actions are thrown out the window with this application, instead it focuses on the surreal and down right eerie, yet so cool!
Seene, by computer vision company Obvious Engineering out of the UK and is built around smartphone sensors and WebGL to capture moments in 3D scenes. Each ‘seene’ captured is ported onto a 3D model of your photograph subject and as you maneuver around the perspective of seeing all angles is produced after you’ve shot it.
Much like the parallax effect we see on many of today’s websites the images produced on Seene feel the same way. But the better the lighting in a room and the details of a subject the better the output will be. Even though the criteria for an amazing ‘seene’ are specific, the results always take your breath away.
Shooting a Seene also isn’t that simple, but the opportunity to capture a 3D world with just a smartphone is no longer a dream. The world of opportunities on how we will share and relate to our world will drastically change while projects like Seene begin to flourish, and we can’t wait to see it happen.
