Scan objects using the Kinect sensor with Microsoft's 3D Scan app for Windows

Microsoft has released a new app for Windows 10 called 3D Scan. As the name suggests, this new app enables owners of an Xbox One and a Windows 10-powered PC to scan 3D objects. Once said objects have been scanned, it's possible to use the resulting files in 3D Builder to create and print 3D models.

You'll need to utilize your Xbox Kinect sensor in order to be able to scan in objects. (No, that $15 webcam from Target will not play ball.) Interested to learn more? Head to Microsoft's website for more details on all things 3D.
