Medusa was a project developed for our bachelor thesis at Linköpings University. Me and a group consisting of 6 other members developed a 3D scanning booth. The goal of the project was to be able to scan a person and retrieve a 3D model afterwards which could be printed in a 3D printer for example
The hardware used was a first generation Kinect camera from Microsoft. To utilizie this we wrote code using libraries such as OpenKinect, OpenCV and libwebsockets. The interface for handling the system was a simple website which connected to the program through a websocket connection.
Code for the project can be found here. If you're interested in reading more about the techniques used to retrieve 3D-models from a Kinect our report can be read here. The report is in swedish though.
The picture below shows some of the first tests reconstructing a person with cloud point data retrieved from the Kinect.
