Scandy is a recently created company located in New Orleans itself that, after a hard year of work in which they have wanted to establish their scanning and 3D printing services at affordable prices, now they surprise us with a more than interesting project developed jointly by the boys from Pmd Technologies, a leading company in 3D ToF sensors. We are talking about 3D Scandy Pro, an affordable, portable and fast system with which to perform a 3D scan from any type of mobile device.
According to their own developers, it seems Scandy Pro is so powerful that combined with a smartphone it has nothing to envy of professional 3D scanning equipment of thousands of dollars. As a detail, tell you that at the moment this 3D scanner can only be used by android devices (a version for iOS and Windows Mobile is being worked on) using the PMD pico flexx ToF sensor.

As commented Cole wiley, co-founder of Scandy:
As a manufacturer, the potential of creating three-dimensional models on a sub-millimeter scale from a system that costs less than $ 500 is something I've been dreaming of for years. I am very proud to be able to offer this solution.
If you are interested in this project, tell you that there is the possibility of you joining it just creating an account on their platform, this will entitle you to become a beta-tester. If you are a software developer, you will also have the possibility to work directly with Scandy and learn how to implement the Scandy Core SDK in your future applications.
