      Actually, film works at 24 frames per second, and TV at 25/sec. Your
      eyes, however, work at about 1000 fps. Your brain is cognitive of
      these pictures in a vastly different way, so that a "frames per
      second" rating becomes meaningless.

      Maybe the lasers that land surveyors use to judge distance would be
      easier and more accurate than running an algorithm on an image.

      A good question. I guess that it would either be programmed to
      destroy objects in it's way, or it would have to learn to do that by
      itself. How, though, I'm not sure!
