It is an ideal time to launch the app since Apple has removed the restrictions from accessing the camera APIs. The developers had to get the root-level access for controlling exposure time, focus, and other features for capturing 3D images. The founder of Dacuda said that the inspiration of 3DAround camera app came from watching food blogger friends taking photos of meal from different angles and still failing to decide the best orientation for snapping photos.

Dacuda aims to make the process of 3D photo-snapping really easy and accurate by using omni-directional SLAM scan 3D technology (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping), software and algorithms for 3D scanning with iOS 8 camera app in iPhone 6.

The 3DAround camera app captures a full 3D image of an object, capturing depth and structure of object as you move around shooting photos from different angles. It then integrates multiple images into a single virtual 3D photo.

Instead of relying on a group of single pictures, SLAM Scan technology uses the video mode and provides instant feedback. It superimposes series of images and depth maps for producing a probabilistic dense-point cloud of your delicious meal or some other object.
