Softkinetic’s 3D Scanning Solution To Popularize Makerbot’s Printers

SoftKinetic, the 3D gesture middleware provider for Intel and Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2014 for the PS4, has announced its strategic partnership with MakerBot. These two companies will work on optimizing the former’s time-of-flight depth camera technology for 3D scanning, which will hopefully help popularize MakerBot’s 3D printers.

SoftKinetic has also announced that NVIDIA’s Tegra Note 7 platform comes with the former’s gesture recognition middleware, as well as support for its DepthSense 3D Time-of-Flight USB camera. This means OEMs or developers will be able to quickly implement short-range (“as close as 6 inches away”) gesture control on NVIDIA’s tablet reference design.
