We have a Raspberry Pi consuming data from the RPLIDAR and displaying it on a screen, using the Skoltech library.
There are several possible ways forward. Continuing on the Pi, different applications can be explored using the LIDAR data. Robot navigation would be a fun one.
In a different direction, the library can be ported to CircuitPython and run on SAMD boards. Look forward to seeing that added to this guide in the near future.
