Mobile 3D face scanning is coming from Bellus3D
|Christian Hargrave in API Thursday, January 5, 2017|
Bellus3D is focusing on high quality and affordable 3D face scanning for mobile devices. Their face camera will work on smartphones and tablets to create high quality 3D face models that can be used for video games, face surgery, digital makeup, face recognition security and a wide variety of other applications requiring a 3D face model. Third-party developers will be able to leverage the middleware and API to develop their own applications.
Utilizing the unique architecture of the NU3000 SoC, the face camera produces a high quality output from a simple mobile device camera through effective use of advanced image-processing algorithms. The application guides novice and professional users with a series of prompts to ensure that a perfect scan is produced every time.
One of the first applications to be built on the NU3000-based Bellus3D Face Camera platform allows users to scan their own face and then digitally apply makeup, allowing them to determine which 'look' suits them best, without the time and mess associated with normal trial-and-error.
"The technology built in to the NU3000 platform and the support we have received from Inuitive have allowed us to bring the Bellus3D Face Camera to market quickly with a minimum of effort." said Eric Chen, co-founder & CEO at Bellus3D Inc.
Inuitive’s NU3000 processor incorporates two CEVA MM3101 high-performance, low-power imaging and computer vision vector DSP cores. In addition, it integrates a dedicated hardware accelerator capable of extracting real-time depth maps from stereovision input. In the face camera the NU3000 replaces the camera interface, control & synchronization, MIPI to USB and the memory interface thus simplifying the design process significantly.
“Our unique technology and architecture uses input from standard, low-cost cameras which enable Bellus3D Face Camera to efficiently generate depth maps. This, coupled with the NU3000's ability to enhance imagery from basic cameras makes our SoC DSP solution the ideal platform for the Bellus3D Face Camera.” said Shlomo Gadot, CEO and Co-Founder of Inuitive.
Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
