Today's inspirational project shows how in the future we might be able to make the virtual Kinect 3D real...
We're still waiting to check out 3D Systems Corporation's 3D printing service at CES. In the meantime, Geomagic, which powers the Kinect-To-Print app for the company, has released a video demonstrating the process by which a Kinect image gets turned into a printable template. Essentially, Geomagic uses the Kinect to capture a series of points, then turns them into a 3D model which can be sent to the printer or, presumably, uploaded to "create-and-make" environment Cubify.
