1. Why did you start Lenscloud? Do you remember the moment when you first thought of the idea?
Lenscloud started with an opportunity. It was the perfect scenario where we knew of someone who wanted an instant capture photogrammetric scanner – and we were the team to build it. We all fell in love with 3D scanning and its enormous potential.
2. How do you see Lenscloud impacting how we live our lives?
We are creating technology that makes making 3D models WAY easier to create. There are so many ways 3D models can impact the way we live – from understanding products before we purchase them to making sure your jeans fit just the right way!
3. How have New York and Newlab positively impacted the development of your business?
Newlab is an ever-evolving ship of creativity. New York is a sea of endless opportunities. We love being at Newlab because it moves with its members rather than creating a rigid mold of a successful incubator. The members and staff also push us to be the best that we can be.

The initial premise of Lenscloud was to make 3D scanning more accessible to anyone interested in using it. We are also committed to preserving our ethical borders to ensure that our technology respectfully benefits our users and hopefully, the world.
