Nifty robot 3D vision system

Howard Gordon, of Surveyor Corp, sent us this announcement about a new, affordable stereo vision camera system for robots. I checked out the video with my 3D glasses. Pretty cool.

This past week, we introduced a new open source 3D stereo vision system for robotics and remote monitoring called Surveyor SVS. It features dual processors, dual cameras, and wifi connectivity, and sells for $550. The SVS is intended for researchers, educators and developers interested in enabling depth perception in their applications without the need for an array of active sensors (e.g. laser scanners, ultrasonics, infrared, etc).
