HoloBuilder, a construction technology that offers reality capture solutions for progress documentation and construction project management, has announced a unique partnership with Boston Dynamics that will bring HoloBuilder’s reality capture experience to a robotic platform. HoloBuilder’s new application, named SpotWalk, is a new product from HoloBuilder that integrates with Boston Dynamic’s “Spot” robot – a dog-sized quadrupedal robot designed to be able to nimbly navigate challenging environments, including stairs and uneven ground.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: robots are entering hostile environment of construction sites.

Couple this with drones that can film exterior shots and robots that facilitate carrying tools and dirt, you can expect the digital transformation to enter the physical world in a big way in coming years.

Every industry is being transformed by digital, even those that were not so long ago considered off limit. Great example, construction industry, as every small contractor now has a cell phone and good data plan to connect to the cloud. New solutions are popping to take over this opportunity to transform an industry: sharing plans and project evolution with clients, tracking budget in real-time with feeds from material suppliers and even real-time decision making on the construction site. Opportunities are endless...

Some of them won't survive.
Farid Mheirs insight:

Very interesting insight, although very thin analysis. I agree healthcare, construction, police, education, travel will be transformed. For sure advertising as well.


But it looks a lot like the internet in the early days; a new information delivery medium. Little emplhasis seems to be placed on collaboration of what was called 2.0. Maybe we'll have glasses 2.0?
