Laser distance measurer capable of problem solving

Designing a physical space is complex and tedious due to the measurements and calculations involved. You need to get all the dimensional parameters together, calculate the relative placement, find the right design, re-calculate and re-measure to map those design points to the actual physical space. If you have it wrong, it is back to the measurements again.

Plott has come out with a device that can simplify these tasks for you. Cubit is their first attempt at a tool that can think and solve problems. Equipped with dual lasers and a smart wheel, it aims to free users from the tedium of making complex measurements and the innumerable calculations needed for layout placement. So you can focus on the goal of the project and plan the journey accordingly. Cubit will do the rest!

Cubit can measure distances up to 30.5 metres (100 feet), with an accuracy of 2mm. The built-in wheel is used to measure short distances and irregular shapes. The app combines these measurements with photos of the physical space. You can virtually design your project with real-world scale and context, download and incorporate designs from the Web, and share your design with others to collaborate.

When you actually get down to implementing the design in the real world, Cubit guides you to your measurements using directional arrows. A bulls-eye maps the points you created digitally to the real physical space. So you just need to walk around with Cubit to figure out where you need to place stuff or perform construction tasks. No more complex calculations and errors! A feedback process correlates the completed place with the original, so you can see how it has changed.
