This video shows the first results for 3D object reconstruction using the depth images from the Microsoft Kinect camera.
Data acquisition is as simple as moving the Kinect around the object of interest.
From there the raw data is processed in a two step algorithm:
1. Superresolution images are computed from several consecutive captured frames.
2. The superresolution images are aligned using a improved version of the global alignment technique from “3D Shape Scanning with a Time-of-Flight Camera – Yan Cui, et.al. CVPR2010”.
