ABSTRACT Advanced Scientific Concepts has developed a live-motion 3D video camera “that uses LIDAR technology to get a range-finding for every pixel.” Demo picture here. Video after the jump.

At video frame rates (30Hz) their solid-state flash LADAR system is able to simultaneously measure the distance to every point in the scene by recording the time-of-flight of a laser pulse

The creators of the technology did a Google Tech Talk about the 3D camera. I haven’t watched it yet, but someone who was there said that the last 30-40 minutes are better than the beginning, so if it doesn’t catch your attention, skip ahead
