Hey /diy/, there're any DIY/Opensource solution to build a 3D camera on the principle of the Kinect/PrimeSense? Basically you shoot an infrared pattern, a camera calculate the pattern distortion and create the 3D data in real time, you can 3D scan complex models with it: http://youtu.be/zzb_RQWrt6I
Apple bought PrimeSense (big producer of 3D sensors), blocked sales, pulled down OpenNI website, stopped the development of open source solutions, I hate to be forced to depend on the whims of greedy companies.
So, after long research, the closest I've found is this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/332648737/lazeeeye-turn-your-smartphone-into-a-3d-camera
If it will be funded, developer edition provides full source code/CAD files/B.O.M., IMO that would help understand what's behind it and develop a new 100% open solution, it's literally a low-cost alternative to Project Tango, you can DIY it for 50$ and don't need to buy a specific smartphone model just for having a 3D camera, it's adaptable to all Android and iOS smartphones, it support Raspberry Pi and have ROS drivers to make it work with Robot Operating System middlewares! I really love the idea of using this for SLAM Augmented Reality (and finally live with my waifu :3 : http://youtu.be/9jpWiTVR0GA ), 3D scans look pretty good for such small device: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/332648737/lazeeeye-turn-your-smartphone-into-a-3d-camera/posts/830400
However, if this continues like this I'm afraid they won't make it with the funds, honestly this leave me disappointed, because commercial solutions like the Structure Sensor by Occipital has reached over 1M$ and it's not DIY, no Android support, expensive and resolution doesn't seem better.
So, it's not my intention to spam, but I think this would greatly benefit the DIY/Opensource community, I always wanted to be able to build these from scratch, so I can customize/tweak according to my needs, if it interests you, please spread the word, I've already funded it.
