While reading Hack-A-Day this morning I found an interesting link for all of you 3D modelers out there. The Institute for Robotic and Professionalisym (hope I translated that right) has come up with a way to do 3D scanning with a Webcam and a Lazer Level. Pretty cool stuff, the down side is, its Windows/.NET only :(.

Anyways, heres the link: http://www.cs.tu-bs.de/rob/david.html

I seen complete laser 3d scanner in a conrad electronics catalog few years ago, yes it was expensive but didn't need any camera to work. it costed like a PS3 + 2 wii-s.
