3D Scanning Museum Pieces using standard cameras

An article in Wired details how visitors to a special event at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum used software which can interpolate standard photographs into printable 3d models.

Using Autodesk 123D, through uploading photographs from multiple angles, one can compose a 3D model of an object.

The application can even be used on phones and iPads in order to capture imagery which is then constructed into 3D to be printed, rendered or shared.
