Walabot. Has anyone seen/experimented with this?

Posted on April 30, 2017 at 10:00am 4 Comments

Walabot is a 3D imaging sensor that lets you uncover things hidden in the world around you. This is very cheap and seems that there is a wide range of applications for working related drones. Just wanted your thoughts.
