In The MIT Improve 1,000 Times The Quality of Scanning 3D Thanks to The Polarization of The Light

A group of researchers at MIT have developed a system that allows you to increase the resolution of devices that scan objects up to 1,000 orders of magnitude 3D. The basis of development consists in taking advantage of the polarization of the light.

This technique could make that 3D cameras that integrate into our smartphones, tablets and computers were successful in being able to scan 3D objects with great accuracy and quality of face to then play them on a 3D printer, but there are other applications of interest, such as the field of autonomous cars.

One of the developers admitted that although it is possible to integrate 3D cameras on smartphones, this is to make commitments on its construction that would that the results were too good. Things change with their system, which they have called Polarized 3D, and that could represent all an inflection point in this field.

The polarization it affects for example to the way in which light bounces in physical objects, and so polarized are adequate to avoid flashes. The polarization of the reflected light has something interesting, however: It gives us information about the geometry of the objects on which has affected.

Taking advantage of this principle and the depth of camera sensors such as those that are integrated into Microsoft Kinect they were able to precisely combine the advantages of the sensor and that effect technology to capture 3D images of real objects with spectacular precision.
