Are you looking for a very low cost scanner then I have good news. Scanse has just completed a Kickstarter campaign to fund development of their Sweep scanner. They are now taking pre-orders on their website.
From their press release, “THANK YOU to those of you who backed, you’re awesome! You have made affordable LiDAR possible! We were amazed by the surge in support we got during the last seven days of our campaign, pushing us from 82% to 118% funded!
As we celebrate a successful Kickstarter, we are already kicking our production plans into gear. We will be putting the finishing touches on our engineering designs and documentation, as well as visiting our suppliers over the course of the next two months. Once we are satisfied that everything is ready, we’ll place our production orders.”
Kudos to all involved.
