It's amazing how some people have the creativity to reinvent common devices to serve another purpose. Oliver Kreylos hacked his Xbox Kinect and converted it so it can capture videos in 3D. The Xbox Kinect is a webcam-style add-on accessory for the Xbox 360 console. It enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller. Kinect's camera generates depth and color information that helps Oliver reconstruct his room in 3D. You can find more videos on his experimentation with 3D capture on his YouTube page.
