Last weekend ArTechLab’s Mark Bakema and Thomas Chudoba have made 3d print versions of Mike Pelletier’s portraits at The Overkill Festival.
Mike Pelletier is been experimenting with alternative ways of using the Kinect. One of the more exciting possibilities was trying to use the Kinect as a 3d scanner. Mike Pelletier: “By moving the Kinect camera around the subject the software constantly updates to create a detailed 3d model. Within a couple minutes you can get a fairly detailed model from a sitting subject, as long as they sit still.”
