Snapchat has been growing quickly, boosted by its popularity among young people but little did we know that it secretly acquired a 3D photo app maker Seene a couple of months ago. And thus, there is a possibility that it may feature the 3D photo technology in one of its upcoming update.
The startup, Seene, also known as Obvious Engineering, has designed the technology with a vision to capture 3D models using a smartphone camera.
Seene is known for augmented reality apps that uses phone’s camera to recognize a 2D image and inject a 3D object on your phone display. The technology used by Seene enables smartphones to convert into a 3D scanner without using any additional hardware or off-device processing.
Snapchat has made communicating more like a game. Adding Seene’s 3D photo effect in its imaging software would ultimately change the game in future messaging.
