Researchers Modify Kinect Gaming Device to Scan in 3-D | KurzweilAI | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

The researchers have figured out a way to extract data streaming from the Kinect’s onboard color camera and infrared sensor to make hand-held 3-D scans of small objects and people. The quickly-made avatars could conceivably be plugged right into virtual worlds such as Second Life.

HoloDesk - Direct 3D Interactions with a Situated See-Through Display

HoloDesk is a novel interactive system combining an optical see through display and Kinect camera to create the illusion that users are directly interacting with 3D graphics. A virtual image of a 3D scene is rendered through a half silvered mirror and spatially aligned with the real-world for the viewer.
Users easily reach into an interaction volume displaying the virtual image. This allows the user to literally get their hands into the virtual display. A novel real-time algorithm for representing hands and other physical objects, which are sensed
by the Kinect inside this volume, allows physically realistic interaction between real and virtual 3D objects.
