The app has been created by Alexander Ilic, in collaboration with the company Dacuda and printing technology 3-D. Ilic, Speaking to TechCrunch, He confesses to have been inspired by the way of working of his friends bloggers, who performed numerous shots of what they ate from different points of view and chose which one best fit what they wanted to communicate. Founder and CTO of Dacuda then raised the need for a camera with 3-D sensors for a full shot, but soon realized that the Apple technology allows this type of printing is applied if the appropriate software.

While it is true, photography itself does not have the quality of a two-dimensional image, 3DAround captures a vision of the object 360 degrees. further, It incorporates the option to share our shots on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Whatsapp, among others, through the app itself quickly and easily.

Definitely, 3DAround goes one step further in how to promote what we love, the gastronomy, and it is presented as a new way of understanding the culinary photography. Because having actually hit the button on the screen of your mobile, who conforms to two dimensions?
