RGBD Toolkit Combines Kinects and DSLRs, Makes a Match Made in Film Geek Heaven

RGBD Toolkit lets you make your virtual 3D videos using just a Kinect and DLSR.

Previously on GeekTech, we featured a Virtual Cinematography project that overlaid Kinect depth-sensing maps with HD video from a DLSR. It was an incredible feat for quick-made 3D models that only a crack team of professional videographers and programmers could pull off.

Now, the same team has posted just how they did it with their RGBD Toolkit, so you can make your own HD Kinect videos at home too.

The RGBD Toolkit website has information on how to calibrate your DLSR to work with the Kinect. You can also download the video stitching program to fuse the footage together.

The video quality is still pretty rough, with raged edges and lots of depth noise, but it's a start. It also looks really badass in terms of space-hologram-looking virtual 3D-video.
