Depth Cameras Focus of Meetups at SIGGRAPH

A meet-up for attendees interested in the scanning, motion capture, and other capabilities of the Kinect, ASUS Xtion, LEAP, web cams, OpenNI, and PrimeSense.
Depth camera motion capture and scanning technology developers gathering this year will have an opportunity to interact, and create a forum for development and innovation for this exciting field. Each meeting will begin with a live demonstration ofdepth camera technology.
Depth cameras are amazing pieces of hardware which can be used for many production tasks. Thecameras can be used as capture devices to scanobjects in 3d,  markerless motion capture devicesand facial capture devices. These meetings will go over the set-up and software available to create 3d scans, motion capture and facial capture. The meetings will cover software available now from the web, which can createamazing assets. The overviews will have examplesof work done with depth cameras and scans of a people, a facial animation demo, and real time motion capture demos.

Programs will be presented by Julius Tuomisto, Ni-Mate; Matt Bell,Matterport; Thibaut Weise, Faceshift; Dr. Robert Wang, Threegear; Orly Gonen, Open-Ni; Jeremie Kletzkine, Primesense; and others..... with presentations of other applications using Open-Ni: Ipisoft, Kscan3D, Brekel, ReconstructMe and Skanect.

    Amazing thorough presentation of the state of consumer 3d scanning today. Would have like to see the leap though. Thanks
