I can see such a devise being very useful to a contractor who needs to get a quick and dirty scan of an existing facility before - or after? - tear and demo begins. I can also see it being used to grab "the day's work" showing installed components related to a specific scope of work completed by a trade contractor. The ensuing "model" could then be attached to the trade contractor's pay application and compared to the actual BIM to confirm progress. Can you say Lender Facing BIM?!?
The potential uses seem boundless. The device allows you to scan your environment - in context - and then augment your reality in ways we never imagined.
