One of the few LIDAR apps that isn’t just another regular scanner, but no saving

This app stands out in a crowd of LIDAR apps that all simply aim to capture environments and objects. It offers a different type of experience that is refreshing.

The only major drawback is that unlike the rest of the crowd, you cannot save or export scans. It’s fun to play in the app, but I would love to call up past scans, place them in AR space, and export the point cloud for editing in 3D software like Sketchfab and C4d.

I’m keeping an eye on this fun app, hoping those features appear in further updates.

Interesting App for Using LIDAR Artistically

This app allows more off-beat uses of the LIDAR scanners in the newest iPhones and iPads. By capturing a line or ring of points instead of the whole scene, it lets you play with time and space in a way that reminds me of long-exposure “light-painting” photography apps.

It’d be nice if there were a way to save your captures for later viewing within the app, and options to export theme to other programs.

This is a very cool app

I think this app is one of the first to really explore the creative uses of the iPhone LiDAR beyond realistically scanning a room. It is minimal, but works extremely well. Hopefully they can add recording functionality, but screen record works fine for now. I’m very excited to see where this kind of thing goes in the next few years.
