Point, Shoot & Clone Indian Engineer Creates Consumer-Geared Duplication Technology of the Future

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2012

It sounds like something from a sci-fi movie; the ability to photograph something and later have a physical copy of it to hold in your hand. According to Indian technological engineer, Balaji Tammabattula this could soon become a reality.

Capitalizing on existing 3D printing technology, Tammabattula has jumped light years ahead by creating a 3D camera and printing package that anyone can use with no specialist knowledge.

The process is a snap simply photograph an item with the 3D imaging hardware, connect the 3D printer and watch as a duplication of the item is made.

Tammabattula explains the science behind 3D printing:

A 3D printer works by using molten polymer plastic, dispensed through a tiny tube, which works in layers to eventually create a 3D, physical item he explains. Continuing, You can make anything from jewelry and figurines right through to useful items for around the home.

While the concept of 3D printing isnt new, Tammabattula has taken it one step further, making it more accessible to the everyday person:

All 3D printers require the item to be made from an intricate and complicated digital wireframe file. Naturally, you need a great deal of technical knowledge in order to produce these. My invention does away with this, instead printing directly from a photograph, by means of a 3D camera. This means anyone can use it! he adds.

The 3D imaging device was developed after 2 years of intensive research by Mr Tammabattula & his engineering team in India.

His software-less system allows anyone to duplicate an item just by photographing it. The device consists of multiple cameras which takes hundreds of pictures simultaneously, while a scanner on the device scans the object being photographed for intricate details. All the sets of data obtained are superimposed to form an accurate real life 3D image within a few seconds, which can then be sent to a 3D printer for duplication.

Tammabattula said "he plans to manufacture this technology in the United States but for now he is working exclusively on producing this technology for some Government Organizations in India".

What? if this technology becomes available to the consumers in the next few years, this would absolutely take it to the next level of 3D printing. Imagine what the consumers could do with such a technology. They see something on the street that they like and simply take a picture of it with this camera, go home, print it off and then they have it. Simply amazing!

For now it is only to wonder what the price tag of such a system would cost. Whatever the price, people will line up to buy it. Anything they want, they could have. This shows a future destruction of the retail world in the making. Maybe everyone will just start working for credits instead of cash like they do in Star Trek. Money has no value in the futurecredits are everything.

But for now it is certain that, if such a technology is manufactured in the U.S.A it could bring back those thousands of jobs and Billions of dollars lost to the overseas manufacturers every year.

About Balaji Tammabattula

Balaji Tammabattula is an emerging guru in the field of science and technology.

Following a Masters in Electronics & Computer Sciences from New York Institute of Technology, Tammabattula went on to work extensively within the Data Storage sector heading up the development of innovative data storage products.

His previous inventions include a long range wireless keyboard & other input devices using the nano technology. He has other major innovations under his belt, but of all his 3D imaging technology is set to revolutionize the 3D printing industry.

His major contribution to the 3D printing sector is currently focused on producing systems for Indian Governmental Organizations.
