6DoF Visual SLAM with Kinect

This is an interesting demo using MRPT to perform 6DoF SLAM to estimate the position and oritentation of the Kinect. While the performance looks good, it's clear that the 3D future of robotics will be computationally challenging. I think there is probably going to be a need for GPUs that work with embedded systems.
