The Leica BLK360 was unveiled at HxGN Live 2017 in Las Vegas. It captures high-resolution 3D panoramic images and features a compact, light design.

Leica developed the new reality capture hardware with those in mind who are not necessarily familiar with 3D data acquisition. In an interview with POB on the exhibit floor, Juergen Mayer explains that the BLK360 aims to lower the entry barrier for those who may work mainly on the software side, dealing with point clouds, and may have previously found the hardware side too expensive or complicated to take on.
