Handheld 3D scanner


File under “Cool-looking-industrial-devices”:
The EXAscan is a handheld 3D laser scanner small enough to fit in a carry-on size suitcase. It uses 3 high resolution cameras in conjunction with a self-positioning target system alleviating any need for external tracking devices during scanning. And on top of all that it looks like special issue starfleet equipment. (and most likely costs about as much.) –Link

    The handheld scanner is a real product. Versions have existed for fifteen years, although they required on calibrated positioning of the scanner rather than an accelerometer.
