Help me Obi-Wan Kinecti!
Nov 16, 2010 | Augmented Reality
We love to find novel uses for cutting edge tech and the open source community has been busy taking apart Microsofts awesome new sensor for the Xbox, The Kinect.
In the video below you’ll see how okreylos managed to grab the camera depth and color information in order to create realtime 3D reconstructions directly from the Kinect. Many potential uses of this might include scanning yourself for inclusion into a game or networking a number of Kinects to create a 3D holographic image from multiple angles. Fun stuff and reminiscent of the Photosynth project we worked on previously at Live Labs.
