Mantis Vision raises a $9.7 million strategic investment to map the world in 3D

The company allows mobile devices to map their surroundings in 3D – which is really useful, or might be someday

Imagine watching a video of your wedding, but being able to look at a single scene from different angles: from the front, from the side, from behind. It won’t just be a video, but one that captures depth and motion in a way that is much more immersive. That’s the promise of 3D scanning technology that is offered by a company called Mantis Vision, which announced on Wednesday that it secured a $9.7 million strategic investment from Formation 8, its existing investor Qualcomm Ventures, and others. This brings the company’s total funding to $22.2 million.

Mantis Vision’s technology, which it calls MV4D, allows you to capture videos in 3D using mobile devices and cameras. It is being used by Google as the core technology behind its Project Tango, a tablet that tracks its own 3D motion and creates a 3D model of the environment around it. This is useful in virtual reality gaming, to try on clothes virtually or for consumers to create cool 3D content to share with their friends. Some argue that with the introduction of this technology, content itself will become more immersive.
