Gotham Laboratories will be at World Maker Faire next month to show off MapperBot, a drone that demonstrates mapping an asteroid with a plenoptic camera, which they have mounted on a quadcopter which will circumnavigate a 2-3 meter asteroid mockup and map the surface details in real time.

Go Lab won the Best Hardware Prize at 2013′s NASA Space Apps Challenge with a nano satellite concept, and they’ll be showing it off along with the mapping drone. Looks really cool!
