The consumer applications for laser scanning continue to emerge. This feels a lot like the GPS adoption story, and we all know how BIG that has become.
As some of you know I am a car nut so if I see the intersection of laser scanning and cars then I can’t resist. The folks at 3D Engineers in the UK have put a new angle on the use of laser scanning and classic cars – insurance. For those one-of-a-kind vehicles (one can dream), that in some cases the owners race wheel-to-wheel on road courses, and sometimes crash, they can now really let it out if they have had their vehicle laser scanned.
Or if money is no object, then you can create an entirely new car by borrowing ideas from other classics. I think this requires an on site visit.
