3D Reconstruction using a Microsoft Kinect

3D Reconstruction using a Microsoft Kinect

At the beginning of 2013, my last year of undergraduate studies, I decided to join the Medical Imaging Labory (LIM in Spanish) and work with Prof. Benjamin Castañeda on 3D reconstruction techniques. The lab had just bought a Microsfot Kinect Version 1 and they wanted to see if the gaming console accesory was suitable as a measurement device, and under which circumstances it can be used as an alternative to expensive 3D laser scanners and photogrammetry with high-end cameras. I ended up pursuing this project as my research thesis and presented a short paper of it to the Euromed2014: International Conference on Cultural Heritage in Limassol, Cyprus, where I was able to win the 2nd best short paper award.
