A project worth watching

This is a pretty cool project.  The idea is to use a digital SLR camera with a movie mode to take a short movie of a still scene while panning a laser in a controlled way.  Then using software, you can extract a 2.5d depth map.  Below is a rendering of the gearbox to drive the laser servo, possibly from the camera hot shoe.

Definitely worth keeping an eye on.
