3D spatial mapping seems ostensibly like a futuristic piece of technological wizardry, but the Kaarta Contour is a true manifestation of that concept that has a wealth of real-world uses. The handheld device can map spaces and project them onto software systems in real-time, giving architects, engineers, and construction workers access to data quickly and ultimately speeding up the process of planning and erecting buildings.

The Kaarta Contour makes use of LIDAR scanning in order to conduct its readouts. The device has a LIDAR scanner on the front, and that circular module spins in order to collect a 3D projection of the room as the user walks through it. The device can send its information to any computer, but it also comes with a built-in 7 inch touchscreen to give users their scans immediately.
