"It is exciting for me that we've been able to go from an idea that started at KAUST to a successful commercial company. I think that it is a success not just for us alone, but for the entire University—to be one of the first stars of the startups of KAUST really shows what's possible from the original vision of the University," Smith said."Our mission is greater than just the joint technology or just the scanning—it is to provide a new way to be able to document the world that benefits the cities and benefits the country in ways that weren't possible before. Our vision is to see that not only here in Saudi Arabia but throughout the world," Smith concluded.
