Michael Zoellner story:
Princess Leia’s hologram message has already been recreated with Kinect. So we chose Han Solo frozen in carbonite.
This is an experiment with Kinect and Processing. People in front of it are posing like Han Solo and get frozen in 3D. We are already exporting the 3D models for 3D printing. So stay tuned. The software will be open source soon if anyone is interested.
Thanks to Sabine, Patrick, Manuel and Ianto for posing. Daniel Shiffman for the openkinect library. And WIRED’s “Rip. Sample. Mash. Share.” for NIN’s creative commons track.
