Matterport Brings 3D Mapping To Life

Startup Matterport, having just closed a round of investor funding, is looking to bring its 3D mapping camera to life. The company’s “interactive viewing platform” allows consumers to built virtual, cloud-based maps of their homes, offices, or any other site of interest using a special camera rig. The maps, stored and accessed in the cloud, will ideally be viewable on laptops and tablets, and will fulfill a plethora of purposes as cloud-based computing and mobile become the norm. Though the project is ambitious, and there has been little to report on the actual development front, Matterport has nearly raised $6 million in funding, and you can pre-order the camera and device currently.
