FotoRobot, a Czech company, has produced a series of robots that automatically move the photographed object and camera to get a series of images from pre-defined angles. It is controlled by the firm's software - Basip - which allows the process to be controlled from a PC.
The series of images can then be converted into a 3D image. Speaking to BJP, a spokeswoman says that the robots are particularly for product shoots - creating 3D images of shoes, for example, to be displayed on an online store.
"There are several Fotorobot.cz machines which can be used separately or can work together – more complicated photo tasks can be solved by synchronized-working machines," says FotoRobot. "Types of robotic machines cover all the current needs of photographing. Small and glossy objects as jewellery, glass, watches, mobile phones, wine bottles, middle-sized objects as computers, consumer goods, fashion, up to large objects as bicycles, refrigerators, furniture, industrial machines, and even live models presenting fashion."
