Microsoft is working on morphing the internally developed Kinect Fusion tool into Kinect for Windows SDK. The tool will have the ability to take 3D measurements, develop augmented reality applications and create models of objects in 3D. This development has been kept secret by Microsoft for a long time.
Excited yet? Game devs certainly will be, as this could change gaming in the future significantly and bring in a new generation of interaction. Game designs could change completely, with 3D modeling and movement in 3D space combined to give a more realistic experience.
The video clip is the most impressive thing we have seen for a long time.
