Leica + Autodesk, BLK360

Autodesk has teamed up with Leica in an attempt to upend the laser scanner world with what I would call the iPhone of laser scanners. I've handled a non-functioning prototype of the device and it physically feels amazing. And from what little information I can gather on the as-yet unreleased device capabilities - Leica hasn't cut corners on the 'crispness' of the scanned data. Anyone else have more info to add about this?

Scanner looks amazing, I like your reference to Apple ;) It's even more fitting, as it seems to be geared towards designers for gathering quick as-built data at the beginning of a project instead of survey level accuracy. Price point is nice, might help sway some people into buying one of these instead of sending out a junior with a tape measure. Another thing I like is that you don't need to place targets, as it has motion sensors to locate itself for registration.
