Greetings fellow ROS users!

I'm writing to make you aware of an exciting new Kickstarter project, the
"LazeeEye": http://kck.st/1gVCcrB

LazeeEye takes your existing smartphone and turns it into a depth camera
using laser illuminator hardware and a stereo vision processing app.

The goal is to produce hardware and software that can bring 3D perception
to devices that have low-power/low-weight processing and a high-resolution,
such as what you would find in your smartphone.

You as a ROS user can be particularly excited about using your existing
smartphone in robotics applications. In fact, the inspiration for the
LazeeEye was for lightweight aerial robots, where we were constrained by
the redundancy, inefficiency, cost, and lack of portability of existing 3D

For more information, or to consider supporting the project, please check
out the Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/1gVCcrB, and don't hesitate to
spread the word!
