Abstract: 
The USC Institute for Creative Technologies will demonstrate a pipline for automatic reconstruction and animation of lifelike 3D avatars acquired by rotating the user?s body in front of a single Microsoft Kinect sensor. Based on a fusion of state-of-the-art techniques in computer vision, graphics, and animation, this approach can produce a fully rigged character model suitable for real-time virtual environments in less than four minutes.
