3D video capture with Kinect

Under - Industrial Design, Inspiration, Technology

Oliver Kreylos hacked Kinect and reverse engineered it to produce 3D video – nice!

The Kinect is an accessory for Microsoft’s Xbox game console. It contains an array of microphones, an active-sensing depth camera using structured light, and a color camera. The Kinect is intended to be used as a controller-free game controller, tracking the body or bodies of one or more players in its field of view.

The motivation for this project was to convert the Kinect into a 3D camera by combining the depth and color image streams received from the device, and projecting them back out into 3D space in such a way that real 3D objects inside the cameras’ field of view are recreated virtually, at their proper sizes

By combining the color and the depth image captured by the Microsoft Kinect, one can project the color image back out into space and create a “holographic” representation of the persons or objects that were captured.

HDR video by Soviet Montage

Under - Inspiration, Media, Photography, Technology

Although I’m not a big fan of HDR photography but sometime you get to see something really awesome such as this HRD video by Soviet Montage. This seems to be the first ever attempt to create HDR video and the overall effect is intensely dramatic and comic … may be it is meant for videos!

This video highlights several clips we’ve made using our new High Dynamic Range (HDR) process. Video is captured on two Canon 5D mark II DSLRs, each capturing the exact same subject via a beam splitter. The cameras are configured so that they record different exposure values, e.g., one camera is overexposed, the other underexposed. After the footage has been recorded, we use a variety of HDR processing tools to combine the video from the two cameras, yielding the clips you see above.
