Everything that you see with the naked eye is about to change. To be a bit more blunt: everything you see will eventually be digitized. This is what has become known as the “Digitization of Everything.” Embracing this emerging reality, venture-backed Silicon Valley startup Bellus3D has taken steps to start with the digitization of your face.
“Bellus3D Face Camera is an easy-to-use, high-quality, and affordable 3D face scanning camera for mobile devices. The Face Camera is designed for self-scanning. Simply attach the Face Camera to a smartphone or a tablet, turn your head from left to right, and start creating amazing 3D face models in seconds.”
From there, what you do with your digitally scanned face is up to you. You can use it as a video game character, you can use it to try on makeup and other materials. And better yet, you can even 3D print the entire face as a full-scale model.
What Bellus3D is doing here is merely a single droplet among a vast ocean of DOE applications. The digitization of your face already carries with it a whole assortment of applications, from video games to 3D printing. Now imagine what you could achieve with the digitization of your entire body. Better yet, imagine what you could achieve with entire cities being digitized! From there, the entire planet will eventually be digitized. What we could learn from that via information alone is incomprehensible, but it’s a reality that is quickly catching up to us. And it would be best of us to be ready for it.
