Walabot's powerful sensor technology can look through walls to detect structural foundations, track a person's location and vital signs as they move through a Smart Home, measure the speed of a fast-moving ball, and help drones and cars avoid collisions. Available on Android devices in April 2016, Walabot's programmable sensors open up a world of possibilities for curious inventors and developers everywhere.
"Walabot instantly turns a smartphone into a powerful 3D-imaging system at your fingertips.

We can't wait to see what other kinds of applications makers and curious inventors around the world will create for Walabot."
Walabot will have various sample apps available at launch. Additionally, the Walabot API will also be made available to the public in April 2016, giving makers and inventors around the world the opportunity to develop content that takes advantage of Walabot's truly unique 3D imaging sensor technology.
