This paper presents a complete system for scanning the
geometry and surface color of a 3D object and for display-
ing realistic images of the object from arbitrary viewpoints.
A stereo system with active light produces several views of
dense range and color data. The data is registered and a sur-
face that approximates the data is constructed. The surface
estimate can be fairly coarse, as the appearance of fine de-
tail is recreated by view-dependent texturing of the surface
using color images.
