Want another reason why Kinect got an open-source hack last week? Here you go, then.

Someone’s posted up videos of Kinect being used as a 3D capture tool.

The second shows physical objects in 3D, like the retail Kinect packaging. The box is measured by the tool after being physically sized by a ruler.

It’s pretty sweet stuff. Watch it below.
