Zoom Lense Results

MagWeb modded his Kinect with 2.5+ glasses (zoom-lens) to increase the resolution in near range. He applied a custom depth calibration and was able to reconstruct nearly 360°. Here are some early results.

    Really nice,:-) like the near range mod on the kinect (going for a pair of glasses my self.) , Is it possible to tell how you did the custom depth calibration ?

      Daniel, you might wanna join the newsgroup and ask MagWeb there. He did estimate the focal lengths by trial and error as far as i know. But a standard chessboard calibration will do the trick. (one that doesn’t map rgb and depth before calibration).

    So it is hard to get a complete 360 degree scan?
    Cause I’m looking for a 3d scan for my small models that are 3 cm in height.
    Detail level is therefore also very important to be high… any recommendations? Is it possible with a kinect?
