What if....GPS and Revit

I was just having this thought that wouldn't it be cool if you had a Tablet PC with GPS built into it and your Revit model loaded on the screen. You could be on a jobsite and as your walking around the floorplan moves on the screen in conjunction with the GPS coordinates. I suppose we could tie it into Design Review and Navisworks as well.

Also, you could also have a little Revit Rumba type robot with GPS that could lay out dimensions on the floor. I'm just saying, why not take this 3D technology to the next level.

Crazy talk? Road work machinery already works with GPS and site data. This could be one of those you saw it here first moments. We could call it 6D.

There are people who are working on just what you are talking about!!! It may however be indirect to Revit since tablets are still too weak to "properly" run Revit.

The firm Menemsha (Spelling is ok I hope) has a system that inputs the locations and ties that into Revit after the fact to give pretty precise as-builts...
