While browsing through the TechCrunch, I came across this really cool technology called Make3D.
Make3D is an application that extracts 3-D models from 2-D images. The Make3D algorithm, developed by Stanford computer scientists, can take any picture (image) and create a three-dimensional model of its content, giving viewers access to the scene’s depth and a range of points of view. This amazing application can be used from enhancing pictures for online real estate sites to quickly creating environments for video games.

This makes the 3D modeling job very easy. Just look at the two videos below.
The first one shows the regular way people’ve been making 3Ds and the second one shows how a picture turns in to a 3D model instantly.

I just wonder how long it took them to make the algorithm.
