Epic Games, the studio behind Fortnite, has just released a limited beta version of an app called RealityScan, which allows you to create 3D models of real objects.

If you’ve ever wanted to create authentic digital versions of the physical objects that surround you in the real world, then you’re one step closer to that possibility now that Capturing Reality (an Epic Games subsidiary) has just released the limited version. .beta of a new app called RealityScan.

Michal Jancosek, Co-Founder of Capturing Reality, said: “RealityScan is the first step in our journey to make 3D scanning accessible to all creators. We believe this tool will greatly help people of all skill levels better understand the basics of digitization, bridging the gap between beginners and professionals. We’re excited to build on the app with community feedback and introduce new features closer to full release.
