We live in an information society where we can consume a multitude of information on various devices, but the digital information we consume today is still predominantly 2D.
The drive to digitizing almost everything is rapidly shifting from 2D to 3D as you can see in the investment being made into Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality by major companies such as Google, Microsoft, Intel and HP. 3D is not only for the entertainment domain, however. It is already being used in medicine, architecture, engineering, design, manufacturing, archaeology, and cosmetic surgery.
But here are three ways that it will affect the lives of most people in the next 20 years:
So, 3D scanning technologies are likely to play a bigger role in 3D digitization of the world, understanding the world in 3D and archiving the world in 3D. As more applications requiring 3D content, 3D recognition and 3D comprehension increase, so will the demand for 3D scanning. Technology will continue to advance as the need to digitize everything you can see into a virtual 3D model will only increase.
