Seene: Share life in 3D

Seene lets you share your life in 3D using only your iPhone. The app creates a new kind of photo that brings together image, depth and movement to create a richer, more interactive experience. It makes photos more lifelike than ever before.
Nik Peachey's insight:

I'm not sure how much educational milage there is in this, but could add some extra sparkle to any image based projects you are doing with your students.

This app seems the best way to manage those bulky manuscripts without it getting lost in transit. Perhaps, you add a copyright digital signature to each document ( which covers the entire Ms) and you are away. Its a much better way to organise the volume of work that piles up on a writers hard drive and clutters your thinking. Check it out.
