Los Angeles, CA --
The Kinect Birds of a Feather Meeting, at SIGGRAPH 2012, on Tuesday, August 7, from 1-2:30 pm will be an unprecedented gathering of some of the foremost developers in kinect motion capture and scanning technology. The meeting will begin with a performance by Isa Gordon, a pioneer in wearable digital fashion and a wonderful performer.
The CEO's of some of the pioneering technology companies will be presenting:
iPi Soft - CEO and chief technology architect Dr. Michael Nikonov Faceshift - CEO Dr. Thibaud Weise Skanect/manctl - Co-founder Nicolas Tisserand Styku - CEO Raj Sareen Nuicapture - CEO Dr. Steven Cadavid.
Also, presentations of Reconstructme, Ni-Mate, Brekel and Iclone will be offered.
These software programs are some of the most advanced packages available, with ease-of-use being a primary goal.
This will be an opportunity for developers to exchange information in an open forum. Some of the most exciting development is being created on the Kinect, a consumer device for the Xbox that has captured the imagination of programmers and artists worldwide.
The Kinect is capable of capturing performances without markers or motion capture suits. It's also capable of scanning objects and entire rooms in real time, creating 3d data on the fly. The developers of software for this exciting technology will be presenting their demonstrations at this meeting. Much of the software is based on open source code, readily available on the web.
Please join us at this exciting event, which is open to everyone, and see some of the most exciting technology at Siggraph 2012. This event is free of charge, open to all SIGGRAPH 2012 attendees, and non-commercial in nature.
The Kinect Birds of a Feather Meeting is on Tuesday, August 7, from 1-2:30 pm in Room 410 of the Los Angeles Convention Center. This event is sponsored with the kind generosity of StudioArts, Los Angeles.
