Hacked LIDAR Development

Found this 'neato' (wait for it) little project on diydrones.com.  The project details the workings and implementation of a hacked LIDAR device from a Neato XV-11 vacuum cleaner robot—for the purpose of reusing it in your own personal robotic projects.  Makes for some interesting reading.  Check it out some time....
