Microsoft makes phone app that takes pictures and makes 3D models, enables creepy men to send unsolicited 3D models of their junk to women on dating sites

Because of 3D TVs, 3D movies and now consumer-level devices that let users generate 3D content, Microsoft has created a phone app that takes multiple pictures of a single object and constructs a smooth 3D model of it.  From PopSci:

To make a model, you would walk around an object, snapping overlapping pictures from different angles. Upload them to a server for processing, and the app downloads a 3-D model that you can grab and spin on your phone’s touchscreen. It recreates your view as you walked around, allowing you to see the object from every angle.
