Hi Michael,

Thanks for bringing this into our attention, very exciting indeed.

I was just wondering, what are you going to do about the patent of that
technology? Three-dimensional mapping and imaging by projection of
monochromatic optical radiation pattern is patented by PrimeSense Ltd. and
recently acquired by Apple. If you are successful, I would expect a lawsuit
from Apple.

Best regards,

> The goal is to produce hardware and software that can bring 3D perception

> such as what you would find in your smartphone.
> You as a ROS user can be particularly excited about using your existing

> LazeeEye was for lightweight aerial robots, where we were constrained by
