About Me

Nicolas Burrus

Email: nicolas@burrus.name

I am a PhD in computer vision with a strong interest in real-time 3D tracking and mapping using RGB-D cameras. Between 2009 and 2012 I was a postdoc at Carlos III University of Madrid working on object 3D reconstruction and tracking for robotics.

The success of RGBDemo, my opensource software showcasing the possibilities of the Microsoft Kinect, led me to cofound ManCTL in 2011. We were selected to become a member of the Microsoft Kinect Accelerator powered by Techstars in 2012, and developed Skanect, a real-time 3D scanning software compatible with low-cost RGB-D cameras.

In 2013 we joined forces with Occipital to better explore the possibilities of depth sensing on mobile devices. Our Structure Sensor, the first depth sensor for mobile, became the #6 most funded project on Kickstarter.
