Interesting Kinect centric talk from Build event on projected augmented reality via projectors and Kinects.  Interesting take on AR in static locations, it would be a logical extension of this to envision a hybrid system combining this setup with Tango to allow for positional tracking of the viewer.  What types of usage/environmental scenarios can you imagine for something like this?

If it was in Alabama I'd have to go with Ku Klux Klannanna. Although, the state has improved dramatically.

NEW HAVEN, CT—Shedding new light on one of the most influential leaders in American history, Yale University historians released a report Thursday that suggests White House officials deliberately hid President Franklin Roosevelt’s mechanical spider legs from the public.

Progress (on the Kinect side)!     Stereo Kinect (v2) capture (2 machine) and playback in WebGL 50 frames at 4fps (limited from  one of the acquisition machines - 30fps is possible with proper hardware) in a browser.    This would scale up in # of kinects, if you can time-align the scans... 

link to interactive   (orbit controls in browser) : https://1f52485fc06319984e8ac9b7ea8e4ebb594cc297.googledrive.com/host/0B9tqZ1GqmRT3UzJ1bHhiaE5TbEU/orbit.html

Each "frame" is 2 PNG images... Depth and Color  (examples included)

I'm ready for color in Unity on Tango...   I'm learning how to store and transfer the depth quickly (PNG image here - where RGBA store depth for ThreeJS to draw with GLSL/Webgl shaders...)  I now need to convert the depth scans/pointclouds into a depth image like this, with interpolation to fill in the blanks I think (based on the color image edge detection?)

If you place the kinects close to one another facing the same direction, you sould be able to align the images. The just take the depth map points and combine them to a single map. What you show above is the reverse. Your right kinect image is displayed on the left.

Great alternate to punch on grand. Great local ingredients and respectable crust baked in a coal fired oven. Kid friendly and nice tap selection at the same time.

Fantastic experience. Fantastic service. Fantastic cuts. Fantastic deal. I've been going there since they opened the W.Saint Paul store, and I will keep going there. They cut my hair, and put a smile on face every time. Great all around experience. They also cut my 3 year old son's hair, and put a smile on his face every time. Staff is consistently great with kids and grownups. Best haircut experience in the Twin Cities.
