Apple Granted Laser Scanning Patent

The International Business Times reported that Apple was awarded a patent for a built-in laser that would allow the iPhone to map indoor areas.

Apple could also use the technology in future iPads, MacBooks and its forthcoming Watch, according to Patently Apple, which first reported on the patent’s approval. The website said that while Apple was careful not to disclose the three-dimensional properties of a laser scanning system, the laser would allow future iPhones to create 3D maps of buildings.

Is there any doubt where this is going?
