Kinect Motion Capture and Scanning
Some of the most exciting development is being created on the Microsoft Kinect, a consumer device for the Xbox that has captured the imagination of programmers and artists worldwide. The Kinect is changing how we use computers: through gestures we can control software and we can scan objects with the ease of drawing a sketch.
The Kinect is capable of capturing performances without markers or motion capture suits. It's also capable of scanning objects in real time, creating 3D data on the fly. Through live demonstrations of real-time 3D scanning, motion capture and facial capture, we will demonstrate the capabilities of this new device.
Examples of medical, entertainment and live venue uses will be shown.
