Fabricate Yourself [openFrameworks, Kinect]

Fabricate Yourself is a project by Karl D.D. Willis that documented the Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction Conference. Given the tangible theme of the conference Karl decided to engage the community by capturing and fabricating small 3D models of attendees. Attendees firstly capture their favorite pose using a Microsoft Kinect. The depth image from the Kinect is processed into a mesh and displayed onscreen in real-time. At any time they can capture the mesh and save it as an STL file. Dovetail joints are automatically added to the side of the 3x3cm size models so they can be snapped together. This allows multiple models to be connected to form a larger overall model, like a jigsaw puzzle.
