Using Aerial Robotics and Virtual Reality to Inspect Earthquake Damage in Taiwan

The 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck southern Taiwan shortly before 4 in the morning on Saturday, February 6th. Later in the day, aerial robots were used to capture areal images of the disaster damage, like the one below.

And before the day was out, Taiwan's National Cheng Kung University used the aerial images to create the 3D models here, which can also be viewed in Virtual Reality.

Shocking building construction causing so many avoidable deaths...did anyone see the cans they used to save concrete?

The VR on my Gear VR would be cool if the situation wasn't so horrible. :-(
