Network of 3D Scanners
Gaming, Internet Software & Services
Wolfprint believes that the future of Virtual Reality goes beyond individual experiences. It believes that VR will allow for social participation in virtual worlds.
Despite the enormous potential for social participation in VR, there are problems…
For example, Wolfprint believes that to make VR truly social, every person needs a unique 3D avatar — but the only way to create a realistic life-like avatar is by using 3D scanning.
Currently, high-quality 3D scans can cost over $500. In addition, 3D scanners on the market are typically large and require an operator. The cost of production limits scalability.
A cost-effective, scalable 3D scanning solution that doesn’t sacrifice quality for cost could allow every individual to have a realistic virtual 3D avatar. Wolfprint 3D seeks to provide that solution and to position itself to be the company that brings real people into VR.
Step 1: Cost-Effective, Scalable 3D Scanning Booths
Wolfprint is building a global network of 3D scanning booths. These booths are cool-looking: they look like big eggs.
Unlike existing scanners, its proprietary booths produce studio-quality scans autonomously (i.e. with no operator needed) at a fraction of the current cost.
Step 2: API & Database of 3D Scans
Every human scan is automatically added to Wolfprint’s growing database. Through the Wolfprint API, developers around the world will be able to bring “real people” into their VR applications, such as games or shopping apps. Instead of generic avatars, users will be able to use their own personal avatars in various VR and gaming experiences.
The entire scanning process takes less than 90 seconds. Here are the steps that a user goes through:
– Steps into the scanner
– Pushes “Start a scan”
– Makes a scan, confirms
– Enters contact details
After making a scan, customers get access to Wolfprint’s web content platform, which enables:
1. Up-selling of licensed characters, 3D printed figurines, animations and other experiences; and
2. Connecting its customers with games, VR applications, and other third party providers — for example, virtual fitting solutions for clothing, or ordering custom sunglasses.
