3D scanners are getting better at creating 3D models of real-world objects, but consumer-grade devices tend to only handle small items, or scan with a low resolution. Now, German research institute Fraunhofer has unveiled its new 3D scanner that uses infrared rays to capture objects and people in more detail, snapping up to 36 three-dimensional images per second.
