But what if your “object” is a wiggly beagle on your lap? Gunma Internet Co., Ltd, a Japanese 3D printing studio, has conquered the problem of capturing moving subjects in three dimensions by creating a studio with more than 50 digital SLR cameras that grab surface data at standard camera shutter speed – e.g., 1/125th of a second.
