That is truly astonishing, a camera and projector etc. The information this technology provides is priceless and it only costed them 350$ for the items to create such an amazing technological discovery

You could do all of this from your phone. With apps and your camera. If you’re going to look like a nerd anyway you might as well use your phone.
