Ah, I get it. Google announces the ability to add KML data to your tricorder flip-top cell phone at a Star Trek convention. Google Maps Maniahas the details.
Digital Urban Environments has yet another clever idea, well implemented. Take a paper cutout model of a skyscraper, scan it, import it into SketchUp, and fold it virtually until you get an actual SketchUp model, textures and all.
I missed seeing a demo of the 3D LIDAR camera at Science Foo (so much to choose from, so little time). Apparently, they cost $100,000 a piece at the moment, but that price would plummet if there were mass orders. People who did see the demo came away very impressed, so much so that some felt it was an obvious mass technology of the future.
