A Mobile, Battery-Powered Wireless Depth Camera based on Microsoft’s Kinect

We have released the circuit board diagrams and details of our battery-powered depth camera today, so that the open-source hardware, hacker and maker communities can replicate our work stripping down the Kinect for portable use. We have been using the portable Kinect alongside the University of Southampton and Microsoft Research as part of the PATINA project in the context of archaeology

fieldwork, but we expect many more applications could be supported with this technology. More information is available on the dedicated project page.
