Neato LIDAR vs RPLIDAR.

Dude,  can you tag any difference besides the "robopeak" icon?
IMHO, this product is more than a copycat.

As a hobbyist, for $400.00 USD, I could easily purchase a Neato Robotics vacuum, tear it down, gain the sensor (which this sensor seems to be an almost direct copy of), plus a host of other useful parts. It seems like the more sensible option.


That would make for a very cool robot. Well the Neato already is a very cool robot of course (we love ours!)

I seem to remember reading that the creators of Neato had originally planned to make their low cost lidar technology more widely available to third parties, but I haven't seen or heard much more about that.
