I had Dr Hunter Lloyd from Montana State University visit to talk to one of my programming classes. He is a CS and robotics professor doing some cutting edge work with Google and Intel. I can say I have had my mind blown for the day. He had a prototype phone which has an upper generation Kinect-like multiple camera array in it. You can walk around recording a 3-D image of your house, save it, program characters, mount the phone in a Google Cardboard and play a first person shooter in your house with a virtual array of good guys and bad guys. You have virtual guns, bullets and so on. I will let you imagine non-FPS, non-gaming uses for a device like this. Supposedly it will be available in May. He is connecting this device to a robot.
I figure I have 3 more years of teaching before I retire. I think I will then move to Bozeman and work on a CS degree just so I can play with this stuff. Now if I can only convince my wife that this is a good idea.
