This 3D scanner is made with a Kinect and a Raspberry Pi 2

If you were one of the many who launched into the purchase of what seemed to be one of the best accessories in the world of video consoles, how was the Microsoft Kinect, we have good news for you and especially for that gadget that you have lying in your closet. And is that together with a Raspberry Pi 2 you will be able to create a 3D scanner.

The Kinect that has had many uses, all or almost all very far from the Xbox, is now reused by a user to create another device, which is really useful, although we have already warned you that manufacturing it can be complicated and that it will also be quite ugly , something that should not matter too much to us.

The 3D scanner itself is useful, although the main problem, in addition to the fact that we will need several elements to build it, it will absolutely need to be connected to work either to an Xbox or a computer. In addition, and if this were not enough, to print the scan it must be connected to a printer.

However, if we have a Raspberry Pi 2 and a Kinect that we don't really know what to do with it, maybe we can take advantage of it in this way. In order to manufacture it, we have left you a link to the website of its creator where you will find the steps to be able to build this 3D scanner without too much difficulty, although you will need patience to finish it and make it work.

How about this inexpensive 3D scanner that you can build with an Xbox Kinect?.
