Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, has developed the Leica BLK2GO Pulse, a first-person laser scanner that combines lidar sensor technology with the original Leica BLK2GO form factor.

The scanner was built in collaboration with Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation to combine Sony’s advanced time-of-flight (ToF) image sensors with Leica Geosystems’ GrandSLAM technology, resulting in a dual ToF hand-held scanner.

The scanner offers users a rapid, simple and intuitive first-person scanning method that can be controlled with a smartphone, and delivers full-color 3D point clouds instantly in the field.
