How to move themselves in virtual reality using Kinect and Oculus Rift




Whether you can put yourself in the virtual space, while lacking the huge technological and material resources? It turns out that this can be achieved by conventional sensors Kinect and virtual reality headset Oculus Rift.

User YouTube nickname okreylos posted on its channel interesting video, which demonstrated how using simple manipulations can create three-dimensional model of the body and in real time to move it to a computer drawn environment.

In his experiment, he used three first-generation Kinect sensor, which he set up around themselves so that if they join lines – would have made an equilateral triangle. Of course, the Kinect sensor has a fairly low resolution, so the picture funny twitches, “noise” and crumbles. As stated by the experimenter, yet he does not have the second version of Kinect, but with the help of image quality can be sure to tighten up quite acceptable.

Images from the three cameras in different projections, add up to a single three-dimensional model of the person, which can be viewed from either side. On the model are clearly visible glue between the three projections, so this technology is far from perfect. Of course, if you increase the resolution of sensors and increase their total number, we can achieve much more detailed model.

These experiments demonstrate that the people are not extinct creative individuals who alone are able to offer equipment developers new ways to use their products. It may well be that in the near future in Hollywood take this technology for weapons and will shoot each actor in several projections, to then be able to choose one or the other angle already in the process of post-processing.
