A $4,500 camera and a subscription to a cloud service can create a 3D model of a space that can be viewed from the top down or from a normal perspective -- a space that can also be manipulated with ease. Matterport's new Pro 3D camera records geometric and texture data simultaneously and can create a room's 3D model within minutes. "We've automated that entire process and got it to the point where anybody can operate the camera and the cloud processing figures out how to do everything," says Matterport CEO Bill Brown. "It puts this thing together like a jigsaw puzzle."
