This amazing app turns your iPhone into a smart 3D scanner


Have you ever wondered what your favourite chair would look like in a video game? Well. wonder no more, as the RealityScan app from Epic Games can suck in the dimensions and design of real-world objects and render them in high-fidelity graphics for use in a virtual world. 

You’ll need an iPhone — may I recommend the stellar iPhone 13 Pro, the one phone that has drawn me away from Android — and access to the Apple TestFlight (opens in new tab) program as the app is still in beta and an Android version isn’t ready yet. And as an extra catch, only 10,000 people will get early hands-on access while the app is in beta.
