Scanify 3D Scanner For You!

Scanify allows the user to capture 3D data in less than one-tenth of a second at a very reasonable price - just $1,490.00. Adjusting for inflation, I paid much more than this for my first computer, an Apple ][+ with only 16K of RAM in 1979.

In his mesmerizing 1954 novella The Houses of Iszm, Jack Vance wrote about feeler-planes that enabled the creation of incredibly detailed 3D images in just a minute or two:

He stood rigid as feeler-planes brushed down his body. In a glass dome a three-dimensional simulacrum of himself six inches high took form.

Feeler-planes were used by the Iszic to create tri-type records that were so detailed (high resolution), fingerprints were captured in three-dimensional models of the subject's hands.
