ProFORMA: Probabilistic Feature-based On-line Rapid Model Acquisition

I came across this amazing research project via @dogacan today. The technology described is a combination of video tracking and image-based reconstruction. Watch the video below, it’s awesome!

The final model has some minor artifacts (especially in concave sections) but very nice looking otherwise. I wonder how well it handles complex geometries and deep cavities.

They say, in the project page, there will be a Linux-based demo released in a few months. You can leave your e-mail there if you want to get notified.

If you have any questions, suggestions or corrections feel free to drop me a line.
