The AR Sandbox software currently assumes a single 3D camera. Adding support for multiple ones would be a major development effort, primarily the required work to take the individual depth images from each sensor and merge them into a single consistent digital elevation model, and the calibration procedure to make it possible for end users to set this up successfully. That’s not going to happen until the AR Sandbox project gets funding again, and even then it would be a low priority due to the small amount of people who would potentially use it.

Another wrinkle is that most 3D cameras (all Kinect models included) interfere with each other when scanning the same surface. This would cause major issues.
