It will be interesting to see exactly how "extremely cost-effective" translates as an end user price.

It looks like a similar idea to the GreenValley Lipod that will be released soon. A velodyne puck on its side.

The cost of these units are going to have to be competitive if they are to enter the market place with the BLK360 which I am sure will have greater accuracy and an already established customer base.

The idea of making cheaper and more accessible laser scanners is great but at what point does the data become limited in its uses because the accuracy isn't there?

You do really need to see the data before you can get any idea how well these devices stack up. From what I can make out on the spec sheet it is 320,000 points per second at 3cm accuracy, which is too low an accuracy for many applications. Still interested to see the data once it becomes available.
