Importing new objects into Minecraft can soon become as easy as taking a photo. Dekko, developer of an augmented reality iOS app Tabletop Speed, plans on releasing a new app that supposedly turns real-world objects into 3D Minecraft models.
DekkoScan for iOS reconstructs objects captured by your iCamera and turns them into files that can then be exported into Minecraft. This image posted on Reddit shows how the transformation works.
IGN points out that the app is similar to another hack--one which used the 3D camera of Kinect. While DekkoScan will be less accurate, it will be significantly easier to use.
