In ConTechTrio's podcast episode 48, James Benham (@jamesmbenham), Rob McKinney (@conappguru) and Josh Bone (@bim2thebone) discuss the latest in construction tech. Hightlights included Microsoft's HoloLens, the explosion in drone usage, and advancements in laser scanning technology, multi-trade prefabrication,  job site tracking and more. In this episode, they also gave their construction tech highlights from 2016 and industry predictions for 2017. At the 37 minute mark, the Trio gave the following review of our new scanning solution:

"Let's talk about Paracosm's new PX-80. Amazing. Yeah. The big thing about this one guys, is that it's the only handheld LiDAR out there that colorizes point cloud data. It scans instantly so as I'm walking forward with the handheld unit, I'm looking at this touch screen device, and it's instantly creating a point cloud, walking in real-time. It's fast and all of this is easy to learn and simple and straightforward."
