So affordable, in fact, that we could soon see this centimetre-level GPS used in our personal devices.
Jed Fisher's insight:

This could be very significant. All these great AR/VR/mixed reality devices become significantly more useful when they know your exact location. As an example, knowing this and having a 3D plan of your building enable you to overlay this as 3D map data.

Let's hope 2013 will be the year for Indoor location reporting!

In the race to bring indoor location technology to market, an eight-person startup is taking on big name players Google, Qualcomm and Samsung, and has the potential to win.
Jed Fisher's insight:

CSR’s Sirf Technologies division and WifiSLAM claim to have figured out how to map indoor locations when you’re walking with your mobile phone inside a building. I really hope that we get to see this work in practice (with good precision) in 2013. 

Having the ability to get to less than a meter precision inside a building is a very powerful technology breakthrough that would enable many more workflows and usecases. Currently GPS/Wifi is not precice enough for many workflows (only getting to around 3 meters at best).
