As an intern, Hastings has been working with Maeliss Jallais to develop a cheap, high framerate 3-D scanner that can be used to track a freehand ultrasound probe, while also gathering information about the environment it is being used in, replicating a paper that describes a scheme for using a commodity laser projector to scan a scene, even in sunlight. Going forward, they plan to refine this tracking by using correspondences in the ultrasound data itself.
