Hand-Held 3D Giving Prince Andrew the 3D Royal Treatment

Artec 3D (www.artec3d.com) and its partners have used hand-held scanners for a wide range of applications everything from World War Z film to the Brazilian Football team to fashion designers. As serendipity would have it and given the public fascination with this technology the opportunity presented itself to scan a member of the Royal Family.

On a tour of Elstree Film and Television Studios, Britains Prince Andrew got curious at all the hustle and bustle happening in the corner. Fascinated by the unusual process, he expressed an interest in trying it out himself. The Lifecast/Life 3D studio team quickly scanned him with an Artec Eva hand-held scanner.

A minute later, a life-like, 3D digital copy was staring back at him from the computer screen.
