From Wired UK: Kinect hack builds 3D maps of the real world

Wow!  This from http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2011-01/24/3d-kinect-map 

“Noted Kinect-tinkerer Martin Szarski has used a car, a laptop, an Android smartphone and the aforementioned Xbox 360 peripheral to make a DIY-equivalent of Google Street View….  All he needs to do is drive down his street, as the Kinect, laptop and Android team log a series of colour images, 3D point clouds and global positions into a collection of data points. Throw those into a custom-made program, and voila; you have a 3D model of your street, and its geo-tagged for easy placement on an map like Google Earth.”

It looks like we had better get a Kinect for the Lab!
