Kinect Fusion Lets You Build 3D Models of Anything (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:



At Microsoft's annual TechFest on Tuesday, international research teams had a chance to show off their latest tools, toys, and APIs to each other, and to us. We got a look at everything, including a robot-powered Haptic touch screen, a gesture recognition API from Jamie Shotton, a custom Kinect avatar builder, and lots of real-time 3-D capture software that will be on it's way to you soon. Here's Kinect Fusion, which can live 3-D model anything that will stand still, including me. Brought to you by the Microsoft Research Cambridge team--who also brought you KinEtre. We'll be bringing you plenty more videos from TechFest. Up next, a Kinect Fusion-based prototype that neurosurgeons could use to visualize brain tumors and surgery plans.
