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!
Intel 5820K OC@4Ghz, Titan X (Maxwell), 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4, ASRock X99 Taichi, Samsung 500Gb 960 Evo M.2, Corsair H100i v2 Cooler, Inateck KTU3FR-4P USB 3 card, Windows 10 Pro v20H2 (19043.1081)
I got a 2D LIDAR, I might make something with it.
That's about it. Work and being tired is all I'm doing.
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.
