Become your own Souvenir with Kinect

Here’s another odd scenario that has come about because of the Xbox Kinect called the Be Your Own Souvenir project.

With the use of 3 Kinects (to gather data from 3 points of view), the openFrameworks and openKinect libraries and the Meshlab point constructor software, users can pretty much stand in any position and have a miniature model of themselves created with a CNC machine. The project took place on the streets of Barcelona earlier this year (January) where pretty much anyone got a free sculpture of themselves created in a short while after they were scanned.

The tiny models were obviously no works of Michelangelo but it’s still a pretty cook concept, which could be taken to more advanced levels later on. Check out the vid below of the creations from start to finish.
