Pick of the Week

I really wanted to give it to this video (because, well, cats) but Always On, Always Augmented > Always On, Always Connected, just saying. Instead, the Pick of the Week goes to the video below showcasing some incredible SLAM. The maps are dense and do show some great reconstructions. It doesn’t look like the mapping overlay is done live, but the set up does paint the planes fairly well. Hopefully we’ll see some applications in the near future!

Okay, one more: What’s a pirate’s favorite vegetable?

I’ll be here all week, folks!
