"A kinect is not only a new gaming device but also an affordable 3d scanner for your home. Combining this with the fact that everybody has objects which they cherish in terms of
design, value or story, we created the technique of cocooning. A Cocoon is a way of giving your personal objects a customized package to protect, display or group.
Scan your desired objects with your kinect and customize your Cocoon with the choice of color and handle before placing your order online. The order will then be sent to the Cocoon factory which has developed a flexible molding machine to create mass customized Cocoons of all shapes.
To simulate the effect of the mass customization machine, the kinects pointcloud scan was used and translated into a code to run a 3D milling machine. Here holes in different depths were milled in a block to recreate the shape of the scanned objects. Pins of the same length were then placed inside the holes to generate a positive half-sided mold. A sheet of plastic is then vacuum formed over the mold to become one of the two parts for the cocoon.
After the assembly the customized cocoon arrives at your doorstep ready to fit your personal objects inside."
