Camera [Q] Question about dual camera, please take a look

Hello everyone!
Liking new smartphone so far?
So my question is, M8 has a dual depth camera right? And as I know it's kind of an open source so we can play with it.
Is it anywhere possible for someone to make any kind of cheap home 3d motion capture app with it, so that we could import it to Autodesk or any other 3d animation program? Is it possible to do that with M8 dual camera? Even if it's laggy, with hiccups, just for learning purposes... I think it would be awesome if someone could put their skillful hands on that idea. I, personally, would pay a lot for that kind of software.
Thank you in advance for your attention.
Good luck with M8!

Take a look at Google's Project Tango. Their prototype phone looks like it has a similar dual sensor setup to the M8. Also, one of the partners listed on the page is Omnivison, who make make the rear camera in the M8. Hopefully something similar is possible on the M8 too!

although possible i would presume.

The set up of the cameras is not conducive with 3d filming or capture Im afraid they would need to be better placed and balanced.

Yeah, I understand it won't be perfect. But I hope there would be some kind of possibility to do that, even if it's poor...
