Nicolas Burrus


I am a PhD in computer vision with a strong interest in real-time 3D tracking and mapping. Between 2009 and 2012 I was a postdoc at Carlos III University of Madrid working on object 3D reconstruction and tracking for robotics.

The success of RGBDemo led me to cofound ManCTL in 2011. After some initial R&D projects we got selected to become a member of the Microsoft Kinect Accelerator powered by Techstars in 2012, and developed Skanect, a real-time 3D scanning software compatible with low-cost RGB-D cameras. Watch our first prototype in action in 2011!

In 2013 we joined forces with Occipital to better explore the possibilities of depth sensing on mobile devices. We participated to the launch of Structure Sensor, the first depth sensor for mobile, and it became the #6 most funded project on Kickstarter.

Here are some of the projects I’ve participated to at Occipital:
