We present a novel scanning system for capturing a full 3D human body model using just a single depth camera and no auxiliary equipment. We show that data captured from a single Kinect is sufficient to produce a full 3D human model with good quality. In this setting, the challenges are the sensor's low resolution with random noise and the subject's non-rigid movement when capturing the data. To overcome these challenges, we developed an improved superresolution algorithm that takes color constraints into account. We then align the super-resolved scans using a combination of automatic rigid and non-rigid registration. As the system is of low price and obtains impressive results in several minutes, full 3D human body scanning technology can now become more accessible to consumers at home.
