Whats about creating games with scanned 3D objects. Some days before digital photo, all games used hand drawed textures like Super Mario, Packman etc. At now we have CGTexture with thousands of cool tiled photo textures. All most of world artists using them. Obviously that 3D scanning object is much more realistic then hand drawed art. And by the way using it is much easy and faster then to model objects in 3ds max. So the future is 3d scanning.
