potential new 3D surveying tool?
« on: December 15, 2011, 05:31:25 pm »
Just seen this rather interesting article on the tinternet:

http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/12/hacked-kinect-science/

 about making 3D surveys of sub glacial deposits using a sensor from a piece of gaming equipment as a cheaper version of a LIDAR scanner. Looks like it could be a really usefull piece of kit both for cave surveying or for detailed morphological mapping of cave features/sediment deposits.
