How extensive is this capture, I wonder. Could one wear costumes? How ideal will the lighting have to be to avoid printing out a figurine with an indistinct face?

Don't need to buy an Xbox One -- all you need is a Kinect and a PC.

So this would be using software similar to 3-Sweep. Pretty cool but I would much rather have the software for myself (with a DSLR instead) and use that for base models... but my concern with that is would it automatically set the vertices with proper loops for rigging? Combine that with a decent 3D-printer and you have some potential on your hands.

I can't wait for this kind of tech to hit the consumer market.

Would be cool to utilize this with a type of Skylander game.
