3D Scanning Microsoft Kinect
For our video we highlighted the main aspects of 3D scanning using the Microsoft Kinect. We were unable to produce our own examples as the freeware that we were using was being un cooperative. Instead we used prime examples from youtube where people were able to capture the raw power of what the Kinect can produce as far as 3D imaging and scanning goes.
"Kinect is a motion sensing input device by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 video game console and Windows PCs.For this project we are going to show you how the kinect can be used with 3d scanning and graphics Here are some examples.
Along with scanning objects you can also capture a 3d image of a person.
Other uses for 3D scanning are in the gaming and movie industy because it is often faster to scan a real world object than to create it with 3d modeling software. "
