I just found this https://www.dragoninnovation.com/projects/32-lidar-lite-by-pulsedlight project asking for money to back the manufacturing of a TOF sensor. I think this would be a great sensot for hobby robotics - seeing the price of 80$ for a sensor which measures the distance up to 40m with 100Hz.
The I2C interface is 5V tolerant.
Wanted to do some commercial for them. I hope they make it. Would be a great addition for my robot projects.
