Moasure ONE: Measure Distances With Motion
Most of the modern measuring devices currently use a laser technology to assess distance. And it works, but we are always in search for the next best thing that would make things even better. Well it seems that a company called 3D Technologies has found a way to revolutionize distance measuring with a device called Moasure ONE.
Moasure One is a device that uses accelerometers, gyros and magnetometers to accurately measure distances with motion. This very same system is used in rocket guidance systems. With the sensors, Moasure ONE can measure distance, height and angle in a 3D environment.
And the best part is that despite all of these sensors and capabilities, the Moasure ONE is still quite small. It’s just a small rectangular device that fits in the palm of your hand. It also comes with a built-in battery that you charge with a USB cable. Which shouldn’t be a problem as one charge should get you at least 500 measurements. So you don’t have to worry about the battery life either.
What you do need to still do is pair the device with a smartphone. It’s available on both iOS and Android devices. The pairing is done via Bluetooth. Through the app, you can choose different measuring modes and view all the measurements.
The device is currently available on Kickstarter! 3D Technologies has already beaten their initial goal of $28,379 by gathering $37,802 as of the 28th March. And they still have 22 days to go! The Super Early Bird package gets you the Moasure ONE device for £99 / $139. They plan to start shipping in November 2018. If you are interested in a measuring device like this, then definitely check out either their campaign or the official Moasure website!
