Kinect Portraits
I've been experimenting with alternative ways of using the Kinect since Microsoft released the hardware a few years ago. One of the more exciting possibilities was trying to use the Kinect as a 3d scanner.

By moving the Kinect camera around the subject the software constantly updates to create a detailed 3d model. Within a couple minutes you can get a fairly detailed model from a sitting subject, as long as they sit still.
