Kinect Multiple Reality Madness

I just can’t get enough of these Kinect projects.  I’m sure I’ll bore of them eventually, but it’s like someone took a blender to reality and starting throwing pieces back in randomly.  Give me some functional AR glasses and we can really dive into layers of reality.

I wrote some software to merge multiple 3D video streams captured by the Kinect into a single 3D space. Objects from each video stream are superimposed as if they occupy the same physical space, with nearby objects from one video occluding more distant ones from another. Sometimes objects overlap, creating interesting mutant forms.

Next, I want to make 3D-merges of cats, dancers, silk aerialists, martial arts experts, that painting Nude Descending a Staircase, that scene from Alien, and much more…
