    Seen this before, very interesting, but I see the points go off a volume for some reason, so I'd want is a more precise point cloud for a room instead of 60m radius with point going off objects

    Linus, I am an ecologist and geographic information scientist. I am really glad you are bringing attention to this technology. This laser scanning technology, along with aerial LiDAR and PhoDAR, is pretty cutting edge stuff. The unit you demonstrated here is really special because it makes both true color photos and laser point scans so it can overlay a color map on the point clouds. It is truly bleeding edge and comparatively affordable.
    The tech has applications beyond just surveying and I wanted to mention a few of these application. You hinted at this application here but I think you viewers would be interested that some companies in the gaming and virtual reality industry are using this tech to create game and VR environments. The most important application of this technology has historically been for creating accurate topographic models used in flood modeling based on aerial LiDAR, sometimes supplemented with ground-based scans. This ground based LiDAR, in conjunction with aerial LiDAR and imagery, is also used by some ecologists and conservation biologists to reconstruct topography and vegetation structure for quantitative analysis. Quantifying the physical structure of the environment is important because the physical complexity of habitats impacts how animals use and move through their environment. Physical models can also be used to more accurately estimate carbon storage in forests and shrubland habitats. Archaeologists are using this technology to accurately document dig sites, recording artifact positions in soil strata with pinpoint accuracy.
    In the near future we should see laser scanners that not only combine color photos with point data but also combine hyperspectral imagery with point cloud data. Hyperspectral imagery includes UV, visible, near, mid, and far infrared wavelengths just like a spectrometer. Under controlled or natural light conditions, hyperspectral images can be used to infer chemical compositions for each data point.
    Keep up the cool videos on tech like this!

    This technology is quite old news, those who works in construction survey or similar field knows what I mean. Of course, they used Leica's technology as primary scanner system, but Topcon, Trimble, GeoMax and so on, doing it too. Cool stuff. Had some luck to work with Trimble SX10 and it was super awesome.
