3D scanner that helps shoppers find an item

findbox 3d image scanner
A new image recognition technology called Findbox has been launched which is used to identify objects carried by customers and then suggest suitable matching products available on the store's shelf or in stock. To operate the Findbox, the customer takes an example of the thing they want, like an ink cartridge, light bulb or even a nut and bolt and place it on the kiosk tray, where a cameras scan multiple images of the product from all angles. These are used to build up a 3D mesh, which the Findbox analyses to look for colours, text, logos, icons and shapes that it uses to search an online database for a match. Findbox also offer an app which enables shoppers to take picture on their smartphone and the online Findbox database then tried to find a match and report at which shop it’s available.
