3D Video Capture with Kinect

I have been meaning to write about the Kinect for some time now. It's very cool and one of the most exciting things to happen in a long time. It's from Microsoft but it's really technology developed from a small Israeli company PrimeSense.

By combining the color and the depth image captured by the Microsoft Kinect, one can project the color image back out into space and create a "holographic" representation of the persons or objects that were captured.

No project page yet, but it will go up on my regular web site, http://idav.ucdavis.edu/~okreylos/ResDev

Two Kinects join forces to create better 3D video, blow our minds
