Team: Derek, Andrew, Travis, Chris, Amberly, Deech, Gene, and many others...
Premise: Create a 3D scanning platform, install opensource 3D software for Kinect and take it to the Archon Convention to get some awesome scans.
We made use of the openNi platform for Kinect and a piece of free software called ReconstructMe for the software stack. An Xbox 360 was used as a scanner and attached to a tripod. A rotating scanning table was created. This table is based on a lazy susan concept with a ball bering that can handle 1000 lbs. A wooden platform was attached to the lazy susan and a repurposed motor from a powerweels toy was used to turn the person on the table. A custom wheel had to be fabricated to provide traction and a spring plate was used to hold the motor against the platform.
This is the scanner at the Archon booth

Feb 7, Feb 21, Mar 7 from 1-4pm we will be building insect hotels at Arch Reactor
An insect hotel is a place for insects to raise their young or hibernate over winter. You can use your insect hotel to attract beneficial insects to your garden to feed birds, eat pests, and promote pollination. The insect hotel can be a attractive focal point in your garden and will provide you with many exciting opportunities to get close up views of the lives of the bees, beetles, and butterflies that call your garden home. Each workshop will include several stations to create different types of insect rooms. Come to all 3 workshops to create the insect resort hotel or just come to one and build a motel. Whatever you can manage your insects will thank you.
