3D scanning with a webcam

I came across this video on Boing Boing. Very cool stuff.
What is so nifty about this, is that it is a markerless system that works in realtime (as opposed to this other software that a commenter pointed out: http://www.strata.com/products/strata_3d_cx_suite/strata_foto_3d_cx/ ). That… and that this is made by a student.
