Time compiled the list via solicited nominations from its editors and correspondents around the world, and through an online application process. The company then evaluated each contender on a number of key factors, including originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact.

Hexagon says that the BLK2FLY can quickly and accurately capture everything from large outdoor spaces to complex structures and environments. The resulting colourised 3D point clouds are instrumental in building information modeling (BIM) processes, documenting site conditions, and improving any asset’s operation – from infrastructure to utilities to industrial facilities.

“Having our reality capture technology recognised by Time as one of the year’s best inventions is both humbling and inspiring. It validates our mission to build Smart Digital Realities™ that empower an autonomous, sustainable future,” says Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén.

“Our technologies aim to change the world for the better, turning concepts that were once thought impossible into real solutions that benefit everyone. By optimising quality, productivity, efficiency, and safety – profitably – we can help the industry achieve sustainability through mitigated risk, less waste, and reduced cost.”
