"Kinect-based Telepresence with Room Sized 3D Capture and Life Sized Display", Includes Behind-the Scene "how-to" (UNC Chapel Hill)

Jim Spadaccini, of Open Exhibits, recently told me about a project that involves the real-time, interactive 3-D capture of people in a room.  As the viewer moves around the screens, the depth-detecting feature of the Kinect is harnessed to set the stage for a realistic telepresence experience.  

Take the time to view the video, which contains some interesting views of how the system works:

Thanks, Jim, for the link!
