From the 2017 CES, The Geek Lab speaks with Novathings and their file back-up system Helixee. For the everyday consumer, Helixee is a small box that backs-up your phones, laptops and tablets behind the scene. The best part is nothing is stored in the cloud.

Meet the Bellus3d Face Scanner. Bellus3D Face Camera is an easy-to-use, high-quality, and affordable 3D face scanning camera for mobile devices. The Face Camera is designed for self-scanning. Simply attach the Face Camera to a smartphone or a tablet, turn your head from left to right, and start creating amazing 3D face models in seconds. You are ready to share your virtual self with others, be a star in your favorite games, or get an accurate 3D print of your head.
Bellus3D Face Camera combines two proprietary state-of-the-art technologies that measure 500,000 3D points on your face to create a high-resolution and accurate face model in seconds. The scanned model can further be used to fit a statistical face model for face recognition, analysis, and animation.
DepthShape™ reconstructs 3D shape using an infrared structured-light sensor designed for close range scanning at up to 0.4mm resolution.
PhotoShape™ leverages mobile device’s high-resolution front-facing camera to capture face details such as skin pores and wrinkles. An optional LED ring light ensures your face is captured with perfect lighting and color every time.
The scans can also be printed creating a lifelike face mask.
The Face Camera and its Android SDK will be available in limited quantity to third-party developers to create their own applications in Q1, 2017.
Bellus3D Face Camera combines two proprietary and patent-pending technologies that measure up to 500K 3D face points to create a high-resolution and accurate face model. DepthShape™ reconstructs 3D shape using dual infrared structured-light sensors designed for close range scanning at sub-millimeter resolution. PhotoShape™ leverages mobile device’s high-resolution front-facing camera to capture face details such as skin pores and wrinkles. In comparison, most existing mobile 3D scanners measure only about 50K face points and cannot capture face details.
“Many mobile applications require an easy and inexpensive way to capture high-quality 3D face models,” said Eric Chen, co-founder & CEO at Bellus3D Inc. “Existing 3D scanners on the market are either too expensive or not designed for high-quality face scanning. Bellus3D Face Camera will be a game changer that allows many new 3D face applications to emerge.”
One of the first applications to be built on the Bellus3D Face Camera platform allows users to scan their own face and then digitally apply makeup, allowing them to determine which ‘look’ suits them best, without the time and mess associated with normal trial-and-error.
The Geek Lab is living the life in Las Vegas this week as we attend the Consumer Electronics Show this week. We have pictures, interviews, and reports that we’ll bring you over the next several weeks. Join us on Sunday, January 8 at 3 pm at KTST fm Anaheim for part one of our report.
