Mind-Blowing 3D video effect tool is hack for Kinect by UC Davis visualization researcher Oliver Kreylos and you have to use Xbox Kinect as 3D video camera…..
UC Davis visualization researcher Oliver Kreylos, who has actually managed to transform the Kinect into something extremely useful, namely a 3D camera.The researcher’s goal was not only to use the Kinect’s two cameras in order to capture objects in three dimensions, but also to actually re-create in a 3D environment their original orientation and size.
Mr. Kreylos used his own 3D reconstruction code, coupled with the Vrui VR toolkit for 3D rendering management and interaction (another of the researcher’s own developments), but admits to having employed some of the reverse engineering work of Hector Martin, the creator of the original Kinect open-source drivers for Linux, in order to connect the controller to a PC.
Kinect managing to deliver with the help of the aforementioned software applications, a live “3D reconstruction” video feed, that’s actually very accurate, as far as the positioning and size of objects is concerned.Mr. Kreylos has some pretty big plans for his solution, the next step being to actually combine real and computer-generated imagery into a single feed, practically turning the Kinect into a tool for creating an augmented reality environment.
