    Dear Mr. Powers,

    My name is Matthew. I am an 8th grade student, and I was reading an article about the Structure Sensor for the iPad. The article is entitled, “The 3D Scanner for Your iPad Will Digitize Reality,” on PopularMechanics.com. After reading I have a few questions regarding the scanner:

    1. When would this product be available to the general public?

    2. Could it ever be introduced into other fields besides entertainment? And could it be used on devices other than the iPad?

    Thank you in advance. I will share your answers with my science class.
