When infrared measure came onto the market, it kind of relegate tape measures to the caveman age. Now, there is a new kind of tape measure that make the infrared measure seems like ancient tech. Meet the Moasure ONE (note: Moasure is not a typo), the world’s first motion measure tool that literally takes measuring to the space age. Using the same motion-measuring technology used in rocket guidance system to keep track of rocket’s movement in three dimensional space, Moasure ONE is able to take and calculate precise measurements in 1D, 2D and 3D, and it can even measure diameter, circumference, angles and levels – all without lasers or physical tape.
All told, it has 24 different ways of measuring which can be achieved simply by moving it around. Forget about lasers, AR, GPS, or imaging-based measurements – motion-measurement is the future. With Moasure ONE you can measures, you can even determine the length of irregular curves, compute area (including areas of odd shape) and volume of spaces, check incline or slope, and measure cable runs in one continuous measurement. It can even measure through walls – all you have to do is walk around it and Moasure ONE will do the rest.
Unlike lasers that won’t work as well in brightly lit environment (such as under the sunlight) and tape measures that offer need two person to measure accurately, measuring with Moasure ONE is just the matter of moving it from one point to another and it can do so for more than 1,000 feet (300 meters). Moasure ONE is powered by a built-in battery, rechargeable via its micro USB port, and can last for over 500 measurements per charge. The device itself does not have any display; instead it works with a free dedicated app (available for Android and iOS) installed on your smartphone, communicating via Bluetooth 4.0 LE to crunch and relay the numbers.
Moasure ONE is a product of UK-based 3D Technologies and it is available as a crowdfunded product on Kickstarter. Depending on how soon you back the campaign, you may be able to pre-order one for £99-119 (around US$139-167). The campaign is already funded, btw, and therefore, your pledge is a pre-order which will be fulfilled later this year. See it in action in the video below.
