Scanners to me are kind of like fax machines--in a way, they're almost a forgotten technology and haven't advanced all so much as other technologies have emerged to replace them. This shows that there is still a lot of innovaiton in this space. It's quite cool what this product can do, but in a nod to Rob's comment, what's the target application or customer?

Rob, this could be used in packaging to detect product defects.  Currently, products go single file past a high speed camera.  The act of getting products single-file means more contact with the product, takes space, takes time, can cause jams.  If it can be done while products are still on a wide conveyor belt, at slower speed, so much the better.

There will be many applications for this in industry.  Maybe not so much in personal use, but definitely in industrial use.

That's amazing technology. Not sure if it has a lot of uses, but it is impressive.
