How's this for amazing and slightly spooky? YouTube user okreylos has managed to get inside a Kinect and extract the bits that allow him to create 3D video captures of what the device "sees."

The camera obviously cannot see all the way around the various physical objects in the room, but when okreylos starts spinning the image on its axis, things get pretty cool! Fun starts about 40 seconds in... [YouTube, Oliver Kreylos]

Ok so if he had two Kinects would he somehow be able to create full 3d scans or would they conflict?
