Outline

The Leica BLK3D is a ground-breaking measurement innovation. Its integrated stereo measurement camera system generates smart images which allow for instant in-picture measurements. Its design follows clearly defined lines which creates an intuitive user experience. This makes it the ideal hand-held tool for challenging environments, such as construction sites. The vision was to develop a tool which creates a symbiosis of robustness, ergonomic and visually appealing design. As a result, the BLK3D is fit for purpose, handles very well and impresses with high-quality materials.

Evaluation

Its ability to measure the size of the subject in real-time is outstanding. There is a sense of expectation that it may be utilized in various situations for corporate needs. In the future, dual cameras will become the norm for smartphones as well, and while the same things can be performed, it will be interesting to see how this item will differentiate itself from smartphones as an exclusive terminal.
