Yes, there's a good chance that versions of this technology capable of producing detailed 3D maps will be abused without the courts stepping in. On the other hand, it seems to me there's also a perfectly legitimate use for which the simple versions described in TFS are well suited: SWAT teams checking to see if there's anyone on the other side of the door they're about to bust down (with a warrant). That use has the potential to save lives without infringing on anyones rights.
