  1. Very cool, but is that really a depth image on the right? There are parts of the person that are very dark in front of far items that are both very light and very dark. There are also high contrast variations in all areas– if this were converted into a displacement map, it would be full of deep spikes. Cool to recover anything, for sure, but that’s not a depth image.

  2. Looks like he wants $10k for an open source release. That isn’t very neighborly.

  3. @Salsaman : What you’re seeing here seems to be the unfiltered output from the Projector+Sensor Assembly , My friends from the Lab (@ my university) have worked with this type of technology before and I can tell you , without any computer vision processing the output from these sensors is not the usual heightmap we’re used to seeing

    Take a look at his new videos (there’s a filtered example that looks much better ;) :

    Can’t wait for it to be released as Open Source

  4. Microsoft top technology gets cracked in just three days!! Congrats to you AdaFruit for the bounty and to you AlexP for getting the job done so quickly!
