Chris (student) dropped by the IC today, and we spent a little time making improvements to the Kinect scanning process we first piloted earlier in the week. Specifically, we put the Kinect on a tripod, and Chris sat on a rotating bar stool and spun himself around. As expected, the result was a much more accurate and complete model.
Brandon (student and Math & Engineering Club president) has some ideas about developing some motion systems for more accurate scanning, and I’m going to talk to Marisa Sayago (Art) about scanning and reproducing some student art. This is turning into a fun project, and one that students definitely seem to enjoy!
