Pelican Imaging demos its array camera as a handy 3D printing tool video

While Pelican Imaging’s 16-lens array camera will only reach mobile devices in 2014, the company doesn’t want to wait to show what its technology can do in practice. It just posted a clip suggesting that the camera’s whole-scene focusing and depth mapping could come in handy at a wedding. A guest could not only capture pristine snapshots of the occasion, but create 3D-printed figurines of the bride and groom while they’re still at the reception. Is this a niche case? You bet — but it reminds us that Pelican’s array could make an impact well beyond our photo albums. Catch the full video after the break.
