Hopefully life is slowly returning to normal for everyone, are you hobbies becoming more social? or maybe finishing off some lock-down projects?

 

I'm trying to finish off some resto work!

I got a 2D LIDAR, I might make something with it.

 

That's about it. Work and being tired is all I'm doing.

Tape it to Touch controller and have a 3D scan lidar 😄

 

How big it is? If you could carry it in hand you could  make invisible "light saber" with sound 🙂

It's basically a 2D 360 degree laser distance scanner. They are used in Roombas to scan the room.

But putting one on a motorised rig, I can get a 3D laser scanner similar to this thing:

The LIDAR part is the spinning blue bit on the side.

I mainly just wanted to play with one, they are only around $100 on Aliexpress and look cool. 🙂

The SDK was really good for the one I got too (YDLIDAR X4), I had it running in my C++ game engine within an hour of the package arriving.
