Move aside, conventional cameras! Bellus 3D Face Camera is here to steal the show with the latest technology it has to offer. The Bellus 3D Face Camera is a portable device that allows the user to capture eeringly accurate full 3D pictures of their face. In popular terms, a front facing camera click is referred to as a "selfie".

The Bellus 3D Face Camera can be fixed on the top of any Android tablet or mobile device and then can click a realistic and awesome, high-resolution image of a person's face in mere seconds. How does that happen? The Bellus 3D Face Camera uses the combination of two IR sensors which are 1.2 megapixels along with 1.2-megapixel colour sensors. It also throws two IR laser projects and a front facing camera into the tech mix and the results are impressive 3D scans and pictures of one's face. These technologies mix to help colour a scan of the face and produce the final picture.

The technology seems quite advanced but the actual process is quite simple and easy to follow through. One just needs to sit in front of the camera within a particular demarcation. Then they need to move their head slowly from the left to right direction.

The Bellus 3D Face Camera takes about 20 seconds to process the face and render a proper scan. Then the user is presented with an image that can be moved and panned as per their discretion. The output of the file is in .obj format and hence, can be easily used in 3RD projects. One can even 3D print these images to develop extremely realistic 3D masks of their own face. Isn't that a great reminding of the morphing masks from the "Mission Impossible" series starring Tom Cruise?

The Bellus 3D company is currently trying to add more interesting features to the device such as allowing user to digitally and virtually put on makeup or create virtual reality avatars. Currently, the Bellus 3D Face Camera is only a prototype but the company expects a proper release by 2017 end. It may carry a price tag of $300.
