Staffordshire Police said it was "a concept" that could become significant.
Dr Sturdy Colls said: "What we want to do is to come up with the best solution that helps the criminal justice system - help the police in their detection and recording of crime and then to help jurors in court to understand those crimes better that they ever did before."
If a barrister could do this, he or she could easily show the jury the scene of the crime without any confusion.
Simon Tweats, head of justice services at Staffordshire Police, said it could make a significant difference with regard to how evidence was presented and "bring to life" complex scenes.
But Jason Holt, a barrister at Steven Solicitors, said he was "sceptical" about the technology and whether it would make a real impact on cases.
"We've recently gone on to a digital system within the Crown court and it's causing significant delays; the systems we're using break down, the technology isn't sufficient and we go back to pen and paper.
