"Remember the 3-dimensional crime scene that Kirk inspected on his tablet in Star Trek Into Darkness?

Australian police are now able to do just that; though not currently in a quality that meets Star Fleet standards.

According to Ars Technica, a device called 'the Zebedee handheld mapping scanner' (developed by CSIRO, Australia's national science research agency) allows Australian police to obtain a 3D map of a crime scene in about 20 minutes.

There is an interesting video of a forest walk-through and the 3D results, plus other results."
