We’be been using the measuring tape for taking measurements for quite a while now. Although very simple to use, it can be annoying from time to time depending on what exactly is being measured. And of course an extra pair of hands is also a requirement at times. The Moasure ONE, the world’s first motion-measuring tool, is the latest creation from ‘3D Technologies’.
The Moasure ONE is an all-on-one compact tool that is able to take measurements in 1D, 2D, 3D, diameter, circumference, volume, angles, and levels. You are able to measure in 24 different ways all by simply moving from one point to the next. This measuring tool uses accelerometers, magnetometers, and gyros to plot its three-dimensional position in any type of space to take measurements. This technology is used in rocket guidance systems to keep track of movement in 3D space but now it’s small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
Being the first of its kind, the Moasure ONE uses powerful motion sensors which provide accuracy that is unmatched by lasers, AR, GPS, and camera-based apps. Using the Moasure ONE is pretty simple, simply move from one point to another and tap the device at each point. This way, you can even measure when there are obstacles in the way by simply walking around them. With this method, you can measure an entire house, a single room, or even a plot of land regardless of the shape. You are able to measure up to 1000 feet.
The Moasure ONE is rechargeable via micro-USB port and the battery is said to last for over at least 500 measurements on one charge. There is a companion app that you download (iOS and Android). More information is available on the Moasure website. This little gadget is to start shipping out in the later part of 2018 and prices will start at $139.
