This project is so cool. It was developed for a Mobile Robotics class and uses a Kinect mounted onto of a Turtle Bot which scans an entire floor. Over time, a many individual point cloud were produced and then compiled into one giant point cloud creating this awesome effect when viewing the finalized project.
Treat yourself to a cool interactive showcase of the point clouds by going to http://www.sccs.swarthmore.edu/users/12/abiele1/zeus/zeus.html. They're using XB Pointstream to have these awesome point clouds generated in a browser.
Click an .asc file and when it's done loading, you can use your keyboard to navigate through the point clouds! Space bar moves your perspective vertically along the X axis while A and S allow you to move horizontally. Press the W key to zoom in and out.
