I am looking for some alternatives to 123D Catch. Here is one, KScan3D, which says "With KScan3D software and Kinect or Xtion sensors, you can scan real objects and export 3D models in minutes."
Other options include Skanect, and Reconstruct Me.
Apparently Skanect has a Mac OS X version, and can work with Structure Scanner (attached to your iOS device and streams to your OS X computer), or Asus Xtion & Primesense Carmine and Kinect for Xbox (but not Kinect for Windows). Details on use with OS X are here.

Dorkbot SoCal's overlord emeritus has moved to Vancouver, but will return to us through the power of videoconferencing to narrate his travelogue of the Chinese maker/hacker culture including the 2014 Shenzhen Maker Faire, Seeed Studio, theChaihuo Hackerspace in Shenzhen, as well as the Xin Che Jian Hackerspace in Shanghai.
Garnet is now the Canada Research Chair in Design and Media Arts at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver Canada, and previously was previously Artist in Residence and Research Scientist in Informatics at UC Irvine. And he has built robots controlled by cockroaches :)
Thomas will talk about how you can use 3D capture software such as 123D Catch to make your own digital holograms with Zebra Imaging.
