Leica Geosystems is a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree for BLK360


Leica Geosystems is a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Digital Imaging category for the Leica BLK360. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

The Leica BLK360 is the world’s smallest imaging laser scanner. It shoots 360-degree high dynamic range (HDR) spherical imagery and combines it with a millimeter accuracy 3D laser point-cloud. Designed to simplify the reality capture process, the BLK360 has only one button and produces full digital reality data in under three minutes.

BLK360 was created in tandem with a new version of the Autodesk ReCap 360 software that runs on the Apple iPad Pro, allowing users to easily create, share and manipulate accurate 3-D models of real world conditions. A reservation promo for the Leica BLK360 is available now. The hardware will ship in March 2017. To register for updates on the BLK360, complete the form on our product page.

“We’re honored that the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM recognizes our commitment to engineering and design of the BLK360,” said Burkhard Boeckem, CTO, Leica Geosystems. “Our intent was to fill a significant gap in the industry with a lightweight and compact imaging laser scanner. We feel that the response from the scanning community and this honorable mention are indicators that we have achieved our goal. We look forward to showing the BLK360 at CES 2017.”

The Leica BLK360 earned recognition as a CES Honoree based on a variety of criteria including engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.

CES 2017 Innovation Honoree products are featured on CES.tech/Innovation.
