I'm organizing the Kinect Meetup. We're in the planning stages. If you'd like to participate, please let me know. This is an opportunity to meet with other kinect developers from L.A.. We will have live mocap demos, scanning demos, software tips and company demos...The purpose of this meeting is to showcase the best software I'm aware of for production purposes, create a community of kinect developers, showcase application of the software, and look toward future development.

The Kinect, Xtion, Leap and other devices, I feel, are just the beginning of a democratization of visualization and we're only seeing the beginning of the endless possibilities.

This will be an opportunity for developers to exchange information in an open forum. Some of the most exciting development is being created on the Kinect, a consumer device for the Xbox thathas captured the imagination of programmers and artists worldwide.The Kinect is capable of capturing performances without markers ormotion capture suits. It's also capable of scanning objects and entire roomsin real time, creating 3d data on the fly.

I'd like create an atmosphere of open discussion and keep the meeting schedule populated with varied related topics.

I'd love to schedule a meetup within the next several weeks. Let me know if you know of a meeting place, and whether we should meet to go over the various meeting issues.
