Seene is an iPhone app that allows users to take and share 3D photos using their phone’s built-in camera.
3D movies are becoming more and more popular. Although the technology has produced its fair share of duds, films like Avatar proved that when used correctly, 3D results in some awesome stuff. The app Seene is making 3D technology accessible for anyone with an iPhone, and that accessibility definitely leads to some awesome results. The app lets you take, share and discover 3D photos using the iPhone’s built in camera. When you take a picture on the app, it prompts you to snap individual photos to the left, right, top and bottom of the screen. In a manner similar to that of the iPhone’s panorama feature, the app then combines those four images into one fluid 3D picture.
The photos on Seene are great to look through, as they offer angles and dimensions not usually accessible through normal 2D photos. Seene’s web browser homepage, for instance, features a 3D picture of a desert that looks even more delicious in three dimensions. The site’s social component is also part of what makes it so great. Instead of storing your photos on your iPhone’s camera roll, never to be viewed again, Seene allows you to share either with other users of the app or on Facebook or Twitter. You can also browse through the numerous 3D photos taken by other users, discovering interesting stuff from new, interesting angles.
