Kinect Used as a 3D Scanner for 3D Printing

Kinect hacks seem to have slowed down a bit since the device first launched. Today though, we see quite an ingenious hack that allows the Kinect to capture you in 3D and then use that data to fabricate a 3D print of you.

Right now, the tool for testing is not finished and the results are not as clear as they could be. However, it does work and it can capture pictures of users that can in turn, be printed.

Check out a video demonstration below that shows exactly what’s going on and how it all works. Although it might not take off, it certainly does show what people are capable of if they put their mind to it.
