NConnex helps you try furniture out "virtually" using a Kinect

Published #3D, #furniture, #scan, #scanning, #room

Here's another in my series of Techstars Kinect Startup Incubator visits. This one, Nconnex, http://nconnex.com/wp/ , lets you scan in furniture and see what it will look like in your room. All from an iPad. See how this all works in this video.

A 3D low-cost product scanner (using Microsoft Kinect)

http://manctl.com/ shows me how its low-priced 3D scanner, named "Skanect" works. What does it do? While the Kinect is moved around, it captures new views of an object or a room and automatically computes a metric 3D model, in real-time. Skanect can also detects planes, such as floors and walls, and perform automatic ground alignment.

Skanect's output can be imported into popular 3d software such as Meshlab or Blender for further examination, measurement and refining.

http://www.ubi-interactive.com/ turns your wall into a huge iPad-like surface. This startup, which was part of Seattle's Techstars/Microsoft Kinect incubator class of 2012, turns a Microsoft Kinect and a projected image into a touch surface. Here CEO Anup Chathoth shows it off to me.
