    subnote: PC-only users take note, though.

    ReconstructMe is compatible with the Xbox 360 Kinect or Asus’s Kinect clone,
    but not the recently released Kinect for Windows.

    Nice :]

    think of all the cool reference models you can have :]

    Yeah my biggest problem is that my PC doesn't have any open space close to it where I could place an object to be scanned. My laptop isn't powerful enough for real time scanning, but I might be able to use their record, then construct later (on another PC) option.

    I've tried a couple of times but it's too hard to stay still while moving it around.



    They sell this Nyko Zoom thing for Kinect, I wonder how it would effect scanning, higher resolution?

    hm, well, it "kinda" works :]

    maybe getting a second person to help might might improve the scanning...

    Unfortunately the Kinect just isn't made for recognizing small, minute details. As a gaming peripheral it doesn't need that much detail. Hopefully the PC version will have a higher resolution. Of course it will also cost more I'm sure.

    As an experiment, could you try mapping a photo as texture to the model (it could be the chair)?

    The point cloud models I've seen from DISTRICT 9 didn't seem all that fine. It seemed that the texture mapping was what really "sold" it.

    One nice thing about Photofly is that it automatically applies a texture, I think that is coming soon to ReconstructMe.

    A software called Matherix 3Dify gives texture to Kinect models just like Photofly. It is similar to ReconstructMe while capturing 3D models. Their beta is currently free - check out http://www.matherix.com/

    Thanks I signed up for the beta.

    Matherix 3Dify -- What about quads? Looks cool, but we would need a way to get the mesh useable. Or did I miss something in the presentation?
