3D scanning with a webcam

It looks like it’s still in the lab at the moment but ..

Basically take any 3D object, place it in front of a standard webcam, turn it around so the web cam can take several images all round and a 3D model is built on the fly.

Print it on a 3D printer and you have a 3D photocopier.

Or have I missed something?
