Makers looking for an accurate measuring device may be interested in the world’s first bilateral laser distance measure which is being created by Magpie Tech.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the VH-80 which is now available from just $99 for earlybird backers with shipping expected to take place during September 2017.
The development team behind the bilateral laser distance measure explain more about its inspiration and features.
It’s true, VH-80 is the world’s first bilateral LDM. Let us show you what that means, what changes, and how awesome it really is. VH-80 shoots two pulses of laser light from two sources in opposite directions and measures the amount of time it takes for each pulse to bounce back to its accompanied sensors. Since light moves at a constant, VH-80 can calculate the distance between itself and the targets with high accuracy.
From ancient foot steps to modern laser technology, the measurement tool went through many transformations. But, one factor never changed: the necessity to start from 0 to your destination. Most cases, the measurer must travel with the tool as well. It’s something we may take for granted, a common sense process. But is it?
VH-80 means you can measure the distance between two points by positioning yourself anywhere along the line of measurement. In complicated working environments, when you need more than two hands or an extra body or two, and there are obstacles in your way, VH-80 eliminates all of these hassles.
