I have a rare opportunity to develop open source software, and tutorials for hardware that hasn't been released yet. Considering that google currently has zero results for using the new intel Real Sense 3D Camera with Linux I'm possibly the only person working on it. If you were to send me money I could potentially have working software ready by the time you can buy. My development time is limited, so I can only spend my time on it if you contribute now.
I’d like to build an app that gets the data into a point cloud, and has basic OpenGL visualization of the data as it’s recorded. I definitely want something useable with Point Cloud Library, and Meshlab. I would like to use that as the basis of a tutorial on how to use the camera to do useful things. I would also like to write a websocket app to make it easy to get the data into other applications such as a web browser.
