This phone features the innovative 3D creator built on the strength of Sony’s Motion Eye camera technology to scan objects and people in 3D and then share across different platforms and media. High quality 3D scans of objects can be rendered in just a minute using four scan modes; head scan, face scan, food scan and freeform scan. Each mode has its own custom guides for ease of use. Scanned objects can then be shared on messenger apps using 3D stickers or uploaded to 3D communities such as Sketchfab. Users can also bring scans to life by using them as avatars on the camera’s AR effects options, third party apps or as live wallpapers. Scans can even be printed on a 3D printer and converted into memorable keepsakes. The 3D Creator app also sports a ‘Find More’ option that provides access to a growing 3D ecosystem via Google Play. For instance, one can turn himself/herself into a rockstar, try their favourite moves in a video using their 3D Scan with Shadow.lol application.
