The True Power of Kinect

YouTube user okreylos has posted a couple of interesting video showing how the Microsoft Kinect actually makes 3D reconstructions of the world it sees.  This is due in part to the recent creation of a working driver so that the Kinect can be used on a PC (see adafruit blog).  The work is quite amazing and really blows my mind seeing the room being represented in 3D, real time.  It is known that Microsoft has put a lot of time and money into the development of Kinect and it’s no surprise that its capable of some amazing things.  While the launch games may be lackluster, the innovation is something else.  You can check out more on the okreylos’ development on his blog here.
