Watch this 3D X-ray of the AirPods composited from 900 different images
The folks over at iFixit have once again teamed up with Creative Electron's Bill Cardoso to bring us X-ray images of the latest hot Apple tech. This time around the subject of the X-ray images is Apple's hard-to-get AirPods. But unlike previous images of the iPhone 7 Taptic Engine and Apple Watch S1 chip, Creative Electron has served up a unique 3D image that provides us with a remarkable detailed look inside the shell of the AirPods.
By harnessing the power of a Fusion CT machine, Creative Electron was able to create an extremely detailed 3D X-ray model of the AirPods by combining 900 different images. A single AirPod was placed on a turntable-like device, which allowed it to be capture at various points as it rotated 360 degrees.
Once each of the 900 images were combined, a volumetric image is composed that allows the user to view the X-ray in 3D space. Creative Electron also added a color gradient to the composite image in post to represent the amount of density at different areas.
