New iphone...3d

Buried in a nyt story today a small detail on what will be included in aapls next iphone

'Next month, Apple plans to hold a special event to introduce a set of new iPhones, including a premium model that can scan 3-D objects — including your face. '

I started DDD today. Its spec. If aapls iphone includes a built in 3d scanner it will inevitably lead to a boom of 3d printers.

3d scanners...scan an object in 3 dimensions. That scan information is then feed into a 3d printer which recreates the object itself. The 3d printer prints an actual replica of the object.

I havent seen this aapl 3d scanner info elsewhere. There is no reason to own a 3d scanner unless you have a 3d printer.

So the bet...aapls new iphone 3 d scanner will ignite sales of 3d printers...potentially the spark that makes 3d printing a must have consumer app.

DDD is the lead 3d printer play, though there are others..trading 12s...low end.
Im in on aapl iphone spec
