Just a glimpse of a cool project we're doing with Brandon Hurd at OLogic and ETH Zurich using Google's Project Tango 3D-scanning phones with a drone, in this case a 3D Robotics Iris. 

The aim is to give U Penn (see below) a little competition, at a tiny fraction of the cost and open source

The maker movement is no match for the mighty university research budget.

Awesome. This is what I have been waiting for, photo, video and 3d scanning with a drone. I would like to see it in action.

Project Tango is  the next level for autonomous vehicle control. Eyes on-board your UAV is a game changer. I hope Google will make it available soon...

They've got controls on Google Glass, autopilots, just wait'll you see what they do with this!!

David, do you have any links to see some of the other items in action?

Any more info on this Chris? I'm looking at doing a very similar project.

Did this ever get anywhere?  I just picked up a tango sdk and am looking to work through some similar ideas.
