Kyle Wiggs/digital trends you can measure an object in a limited number of ways, but some are more labor-intensive than others.
Take the tape measure, for example: you have to grab one end tightly, stretch out the retractable end and keep trying to maintain a vertical look with the fixture you are trying to measure.
Even the most experienced contractors can get ulcers.
But technology is here to help.
Enter 01, a supercompact, pen-
Shape measurement tools for Canadian startup instruments.
It has an attractive prospect: being able to measure blunt angles and contour edges that cannot be measured by traditional rulers and calipers.

A sensor capable of recording the surface profile of an object.
The rubber wheel on the top axle can handle the measurement task, and the red laser near the tip can be used as a guide for visual alignment.
The instrument has invested a lot of energy in the design of the measuring pen.

01 will get the ability to capture 3D object curves and save this data in a format that the modeling program can understand.
Easy to install.
Once the tiny cylindrical battery of 01 is removed from the foam housing and placed in the battery socket of 01, the unit is powered on immediately.
We don't have any problems when activating the Bluetooth pairing mode of 01 or having the companion app recognize.
A few minutes later, we measured all the office gaps at our fingertips.
We put 01 through the winches, rolling small measuring tools on the table, computer monitors, several chairs, smartphones, and the arms and palm of our reviewers.
Subsequent measurements of the same object produced results in a millimeter range, and it was impressive that 01 never crashed or lost a Bluetooth connection during the working day afternoon.
We found that some of the 01 features are particularly beautiful.
Lasers can be programmed to flash in predetermined increments to help measure the same in space.
