Turn Your PlayStation Camera Into A 3D Scanner

The PlayStation Eye is fairly handy as a console camera, a PC webcam and even part of Sony's Move setup. But it's even handier as a 3D scanner.

That means that with the Eye, some software and a home-made rig, you can create your own 3D scans, which can then be used as mere models or, more extravagantly, if you can find a 3D printer you can make your own statues or action figures.

Fancy you'd be able to put something like this together? You can find instructions at the link below. Be sure to send us pictures of your Wing Commander action figures, will you? Thanks.
