Dekko team member portemantho details the app's creation on Reddit, explaining that it uses technology originally built for the augmented reality racing game Tabletop Speed. The app uses an iPhone or iPad's camera to scan a 3D object, then "cubifies" the results using existing block types within Minecraft. Enterprising hackers previously produced similar results using Kinect.
DekkoScan has been submitted to Apple for approval, and should appear in the App Store shortly.
