Premise: Create a 3D scanning platform, install opensource 3D software for Kinect and take it to the Archon Convention to get some awesome scans.
We made use of the openNi platform for Kinect and a piece of free software called ReconstructMe for the software stack. An Xbox 360 was used as a scanner and attached to a tripod. A rotating scanning table was created. This table is based on a lazy susan concept with a ball bering that can handle 1000 lbs. A wooden platform was attached to the lazy susan and a repurposed motor from a powerweels toy was used to turn the person on the table. A custom wheel had to be fabricated to provide traction and a spring plate was used to hold the motor against the platform.
This is the scanner at the Archon booth

This will be a open to public class, We have a few Arduino's and laptops to use however it is best if you are able to bring a Arduino and Laptop. We will be going over sensor usage. This includes light,temp and ultrasonic and describing a few more. Sensors allow's a Arduino to sense the world around it. There will be sensor kits to purchase that will cost ~ 8-10 dollars.
