Hello all,

Have you seen the new Xbox360 Kinect "Object Scan" feature?  Object Scan allows players to scan ANY object into the Xbox making it fully playable.

Essentially, those with Kinect can now scan their Lego Sets, Minifigs, etc and create there own lego world, allowing them to play and live out their lego world in a virtual setting.  Amazing!

Microsoft announced it today at E3'11.  The example shown at the event - developers scanned a stuffed toy and where able to mimic movements within a virtual environment.

I'm not sure how good the technology is, or well be in the near future.  But, exactly, think of the possibilities.  An AFOL being able to scan their entire Lego City or Kingdom, thus creating a virtual environment which they can mimic and control their creation.  A huge step from stop-motion.

You need a Kinect and Xbox.  It is available on Xbox Live.
