With the introduction of googles project tango it will be possible to generate high quality 3d maps in real time, a navigation mesh can then be formed allowing robotics to navigate and also avoid obsticals. I use a game engine that could drive this right now, but the engine I use can not have geometry added in real time. A hack would be to reload the map and restart the engine every few frames......



Long story short the possiblities for home made high quality robotics are getting better.

and let me be the first to welcome our imminent robotic overlords/replacements.

Tango in action

Note: this could help in R&D as well in space...

Thanks for that. Very cool.

Contrary to popular belief, SSTO's in fact are actually easy. Just use the most efficient engines
and stages at the same time, and the result will automatically be SSTO.

Only if you hope/envisage space exploration and exploitation to be done by nothing but robots.

A astronaut wearing a tango could check all of the hull easily, and route robotics to anywhere he had scene,

one astronaut could look at another and then press "retrieve" and his suit automatically take him back to dock...

Automation can save lives,


Robots are no good without a repairman, or at least it's very hard to engineer something that will not break.
