Interesting find James. Looks very similar to many previous backpack and mobile mappers, with a few exceptions. The spec sheet on the Panther states:
patented visual odometry system
This sounds cool and unique, but what I hear is this thing needs good lighting to work :? I hope my pessimistic sense is off.
