This is genius... I always wanted to do this, being an user of 3D computer software, being able to import objects with the phone is a huge deal!

I will gladly pay for this

Too slow - been done already. Have a look at A123catch by autodesk {the autocad & inventor people}

I'll stick with my camera thanks. This tech is still in its infancy and needs a lot of work

"the only thing that keeps us from getting this app is the fact that it’s still in early development"
Are you suggesting that this is an option? I have followed this story each time it has been posted around the web in the last few weeks, and none of the source links I have seen offer anything as a download.
If you have information, or better yet a link, to where we might be able to try it out, I would be quite grateful. I'm sure a number of us would even be willing to submit bugs etc for them!
