If you’ve ever wondered what a Kinect with DSLR image resolution might be like… well, you’ll have to wait. But for now, this is the next best thing: called RGBDToolkit, it’s a project designed to layer HD video over Kinect’s depth maps. And it’s pretty neat.
OK, so it’s definitely not perfect yet, but what do you expect from a team of people strapping DSLRs to Kinects and waving them around?
The software — which you can get right here — allows a calibrated Kinect and DSLR pair to capture HD video with 3D depth. Kind of. The results are trippy in places, ragged in others, and still require a heap of post-processing to come to life. But we all have to start somewhere — and right now, this is pretty cool. [RGBDToolkit]
