Does an Android phone have everything it needs to reconstruct someone's posture, by using the camera sensors? If yes, are nowadays' phones fast enough for this?

Here's a video of what I mean on the XBox Kinnect

Thanks in advance

  • AFAIK, no. Kinect has depth sensor that allows to measure distance between camera and objects, while normal camera on Android doesn't have that.

  • @AndrewT. wasn't there one Android device introducing something similar, using a second camera lens? I remember having read about this, but don't remember which device or manufacturer that was. Ah, here: Dell to put depth-sensing 3D cameras in more Android, plus HTC announces the new One with depth-sensing camera

    @Izzy I also heard about that news, but as currently written, I assume the questions asks for all recent phones, which is not correct.

  • Definitely true, @AndrewT. Different interpretation of the question's "an Android phone" versus its "nowadays' phones": I focussed on the former, you on the latter #D
