........does this worry you at all?
New way for the NSA to get the building's layout before you get SWATed. They get to see all your special hiding places too. The technology isn't bad, putting it in smart phones is.
Hopefully they are just gathering meta for beta testing a different application.
feels like there really isnt much of a use for this tech other than the obvious NSA implications and what the article says.
This is the first I've heard about it and havent really thought up of any good applications for this.
Anyone have any ideas to use this?
>anything that uses 3d
3d scanning is huge right now, mate. Something that can 3d map something without needing at least 200 images for photogrammetry AND for <$500 AND built into a smartphone is absolutely fantastic.
Blessing and a curse to me.
I work in construction, its nice to be able to plan routes for my pipes with accuracy to avoid obstructions but the next step is a robot that does my job utilizing this technology.
Also, its nice to be a guy that sees what he's doing in his head and puts the work in to make what he imagined. Not everyone has that ability, I think this technology will level the playing field for dumbasses.
Not overly revolutionary. A similar app, although relatively simpler already exists. It's called Magic Plan. Although I think the difference is the broader application of data that will potentially be available from Tango
But you don't really plan the routes for pipes though, it's all on a blueprint drawn up by the designer. And with all the different trades involved and ongoing changes, there are always issues to be worked out on the spot
How about we get a smartphone that's actually usable by blind people first? They aren't hard to make, the technology for realtime-updating braille displays is here, but nobody builds it in.
We literally could sit on qualcomm snapdragons for the next 5 years and have smart phones that are capable enough.
The only things we actually need to improve in smart phones are ram quantities and physical memory quantities, anything else is a marketing or nsa meme, especially because if devs actually gave a fuck we'd be utilising resources so much better.
Its just a shame that Apple drags the memory game into the dirt, how their BEST phone has ONLY 128 gb of memory is a mystery to me.
So is gathering sticks on the sabbath, but for some reason you seem fine with that one. Homosex is a sin, but not a special one. It's just the usual kind of sin people commit all the time, and for which forgiveness is there just for the asking.
I asked for this. In fact, I went out of my way to do it long before it became news. Reason? Same as digital books. It's good to have your house fit inside your phone. No more homeless people!
