Kinect + brain scans = augmented reality for neurosurgeons

March 14, 2013


The Microsoft Research Cambridge team has built an app for brain surgeons. Kinect Fusion supplies 3D modeling of anything, which could fuel some seriously neat medical innovations. (Watch the demo of Kinect Fusion here.)

At the 13th annual Microsoft TechFest, Ben Glocker demoed a prototype app that would allow neurosurgeons to look inside a patient’s brain before they cut it open. Doctors could see the skeleton, brain,… read more

Kinect fusion lets you build 3D models of anything

March 8, 2013


At Microsoft’s annual TechFest on Tuesday, international research teams had a chance to show off their latest tools, toys, and APIs to each other, and to us. We got a look at everything, including a robot-powered Haptic touch screen, a gesture recognition API from Jamie Shotton, a custom Kinect avatar builder, and lots of real-time 3-D capture software that will be on it’s way to you soon.

Here’s Kinect… read more

Sicco van Sas | We have created a Superman game using Kinect and virtual reality glasses with head tracking. The goal of our one-month project was to create an immersive virtual reality feeling with Kinect which could be controlled in an intuitive way.

This is the result of a month long project of the MSc. Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam with support of ISLA (Intelligent Systems Lab Amsterdam).

Kinect-controlled robot

January 27, 2011

New Scientist | Microsoft Kinect’s game controllers have been popular with hackers since their launch in November last year. The sophisticated depth-sensing camera can detect your gestures from afar, typically to play video games. But we’ve seen it hacked to control a digital bird, morph an image and even to apply digital clothing to a topless man (watch these hacks here). Now developer Taylor Veltrop has used the system… read more

Leap Motion | Introducing the Leap

November 9, 2012


Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.

The Leap works on Windows Vista/7/8 and Mac OS X, with Linux being on the agenda. To learn more, pre-order, or apply… read more

Two years ago, Rodney Schoenhardt faced having his leg amputated. A condition called critical limb ischemia meant that blockage in his arteries restricted blood flow to his legs. In an attempt to save his leg, Rodney underwent several operations; for a time the pain went, only to come back again.
It was then his doctors turned to stem cell treatment.
