Video: Two Kinects working together to produce real-time 3D images

If you’ve been following the Kinect hacks that we’ve been covering, you’ll know that one of the assumed limitations of the Kinect is that hackers could only use one at a time because the sensors would conflict with each other. Well, we can seemingly throw that limitation out of the window, as the following video – taken by Oliver Kreylos – shows.

While not perfect yet, it is still pretty cool as you’ll see, and really, the possibilities that this creates are nearly endless. 3D mapping of objects, 3D movie making, design – you name it, using dual Kinects to film and interact with the same object as Kreylos does here could lead to many, many uses.
