Scott said they are investigating this technology internally and wanted to share this update as well.  Christine mentioned she owns a Project Tango kit and has experience with the hardware.  Scott explained that the tablet is available now, has been for the past 15 months, and the price has recently dropped.   
-	Christine Perey - The Lenovo phones have a 5.6” form-factor per Christine – they have a dedicated site and will compete directly with the Intel RealSense.  Will see a lot of depth sensor technology at Mobile World Congress.  Intel will announce several models of smartphones using RealSense and Qualcomm and Google will announce their partners in this space.  Eventually, the depth sensors will be integrated into Glasses.  It is imperative not to jump to quickly to a wearable as the focus is on the content preparation and is smooth and combines effectively.  Depth sensing is useful for recognizing scenes and objects, such as products that don't have a lot of texture and has a smooth finish.  Objects with shiny or smooth surfaces work well with depth sensors.  IR depth sensors are affected by sunlight, but the Project Tango technology is more robust and can be used for outdoor use cases.  Tango comes with SLAM technology built it and is an advanced form of SLAM.
-	Sam went over the Structure.IO / Occipital sensors and new announcements from last week – Structure Core and the Engine SDK.  Group discussed Infinity AR advancements as well regarding IMU and outdoor use cases.

-	Christine’s blog post will be coming out tomorrow; it is in draft form.
