Hm, it looks like the laser and sensor are inside the pretty sizeable 
rotating part... is that a good idea? How does it electrically connect 
to the fixed parts? Does anyone know how these perform in terms of wear 
and lifetime expectations? Why not use a rotating mirror instead? Would 
that not be a lot less complicated, and smaller and lighter, too? Or 
does that not work well for 360-degree scanning? Not that I know much 
about these things - I am just intrigued.

And for drool factor, check out this range 
- for pricing on these, I would guess just add another zero at the end 
of the RPLIDAR...

Kind regards,
