I’m definitely a gadget freak and a bit of a fan of cool, mobile technology. This bad boy, obviously geared towards a nice market (3D control, construction etc…), from Carlson Software is pretty darned sweet, and innovative!

It’s designed for use in heavy equipment utilized in mining, landfills, dredging, blast drilling and for other 3D machine control applications.
