Hey Guys-

It looks like the BLK team will have some cool new gear to announce at HxGN this year. I'm pretty pumped about it! You can check out the website here --> https://www.graspofreality.com/

Hi Andrew.
Just signed in on the updates list from the graspofreality. Expecting cool things.
As a specialist in BLK maybe you can help me to understand why in each job i go there is always one or two "no scan"...
Thanks.
PS: seen your videos on Youtube about Cloudworx and they were very helpfull!

I got pretty close with my guess for the BLK3D (i guessed it was going to be a disto+3D scanner/camera).

I'm going to say . . . new wearable/handheld mobile LiDAR?

also, anyone know does BLK is an acronym for?

I'm guessing something like leap motion integration for the BLK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_d6KuiuteIA

Guessing some kind of handheld as well.

Hopefully they enable a cord to download/upload.

Perhaps it will be 5G connected and simply upload all the data in real-time to the cloud?

My guess is handheld of some kind.
