KinectFusion builds 3D models in real time

From KinectFusion HQ:

“KinectFusion, a system that takes live depth data from a moving depth camera and in real-time creates high-quality 3D models. The system allows the user to scan a whole room and its contents within seconds. As the space is explored, new views of the scene and objects are revealed and these are fused into a single 3D model. The system continually tracks the 6DOF pose of the camera and rapidly builds a volumetric representation of arbitrary scenes.”

Would probably only work at night or under low lighting- but I wonder what this would do in a forest understory?   Would attempt to model a solid surface- but would that be useful?

Hmmm… Definitely deserves to be experimented with!
