Disney Research Zurich, along with the University of Zaragoza, have now shared the results of their ‘Stylized Hair Capture’ project. The aim of the project is to improve upon the already popular trend of custom 3D printed figures which have traditionally been limited to facial scans being plastered onto an existing model, neglecting any other personal attribute. The ‘Stylized Hair Capture’ project sets out to improve on the fad with the intent of capturing the individual as they appear that day, right down to their individual hair style and color. The demo video — embedded below — even goes as far as to show that any object with hair- or fur-like texture, such as a stuffed animal, can be scanned in digitally and faithfully recreated as a result.
