The Structure Sensor is the first 3D sensor for mobile devices. Simply clip it to a compatible mobile device, and you can instantly enable a completely new set of possibilities. Capture detailed, full-color 3D scans of objects or people. Capture every measurement in a room in just seconds. Or play mixed reality games where virtual elements are locked precisely to the real world around you. Designed for iPad and iPhone, yet hackable to be used with Android, Windows, Mac, Linux and other platforms too.
Easily capture anything from a small object to your favorite relative as a precise, full-color 3D model.
Peer into a future where what you do in the real world controls the experiences you have in virtual worlds.
Simply stand in the center of the room, press one button, and capture every measurement all at once.
The Structure SDK for iOS is our way of taking care of the basics so developers can get straight to publishing incredible applications with Structure Sensor. Need precise 6-DoF positional tracking? Volumetric reconstruction? Real world occlusion? Our APIs have you covered. Prefer to develop at a low level? You'll have direct access to the same raw data and low-level controls on the Structure Sensor that we do. For developers using platforms other than iOS, the Structure Sensor offers compatibility via OpenNI for Windows, Linux, Android and OS X.
Describe your product in 3 words.
Mobile 3D vision
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
We were inspired by devices like the Microsoft Kinect, and the new kinds of experiences it enabled for both developers and consumers. Our goal was to extend what began with the Kinect to the most popular mobile platforms used by hundreds of millions of people around the world.
What makes your product special?
There’s really nothing else quite like the Structure Sensor. Its form factor makes it easy to add depth sensing to nearly any mobile device, while its powerful SDK enables applications that have never before been possible.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Prior to creating the Structure Sensor, Occipital was purely a software company. With the introduction of the Structure Sensor, however, we needed to recreate ourselves as an integrated software-hardware company. That has proven to be both one of the most challenging as well as one of the best parts of the creation process. We cut no corners in creating the Structure Sensor, and we’re proud of what we’ve made, as well as what we’ve become capable of as a company in the process.
