In the early days of an emerging industry the innovations come at a rapid pace. As an industry begins to mature that pace naturally slows down. Perhaps the manufacturers are working on a new round of disruptive products that will soon be announced, but for now it seems that recently we are seeing mainly incremental improvements.
I am thinking of something like what FARO did a few years ago when they shocked the market with their Focus3D.
A lot of the excitement today seems to be with technologies that use 3D data such as augmented/virtual reality and the autonomous vehicle industry. These drive the need for 3D data which is good for the laser scanning ecosystem.
Perhaps it’s just me. What do you think?
