Soon you can capture a 3D selfies on Snapchat

Snapchat acquired Seene a 3D photo app maker and making her way to be the first platform for 3D selfies.

“Seene lets you capture 3D models from your phone with a simple smartphone camera. Snapchat could use Seene’s format for a brand new category of selfie lenses, a new 3D photo format, and potentially for future virtual reality projects.

According to our sources, Snapchat was interested in Seene’s computer vision technology and its engineering team more than for its consumer product. As TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino said when he covered Seene’s app back in 2013: ‘I’m not sure what kind of future an app like Seene has at scale without the welcoming arms of a larger entity’.”/techcrunch website
