Is the tape measure about to become obsolete. The start-up company Instrumment, Inc based in Montreal think so with its new dimensioning instrument named O1.
The 01 sensor rolls to capture the dimensions of any object, then logs, converts and shares the dimensions through your mobile phone. It contains a proprietary gear and magnet sensor system that is reading rotation and revolutions.
The 01 sensor uses a proprietary magnetic sensor and gear system to measure with reasonable accurately. Sensor is accurate up to 0.1mm with the ultimate accuracy depending on the user. Future developments will remove the user error, but for now, the users will have to live with some small human caused error just like when they use a measuring rule or tape.
01 is being presented as an essential tool for everyone who manufacturs – designers, engineers, architects, tailors, carpenters and masons, for example. The 01 is designed to equip most users with the most convenient, most intuitive way to capture and use dimensions every day.
The Pro App allows the 01 allows the capture of the 3D curves of any object, allows sharing via smartphone and eventual download to CAD software.
