News: InstruMMents, Founded by Misfit Shine Creators, Launches 01: World’s First Dimensioning Instrument
MONTREAL – November 1, 2016 – InstruMMents, an innovation company founded by the creators of Misfit Shine, introduces 01, the world’s first dimensioning instrument. 01 rolls over straight, curved or contoured objects to intuitively capture, log, and share dimensions. Elegantly carved in aluminum, 01 is contained within a pen, pencil or stylus, and wirelessly connects to smartphones.
“There is a dire need to rethink how we capture and use dimensions,” said founder and CEO, Mladen Barbaric. “Measuring tape, for example, hasn’t really changed since its creation in 1860.” The InstruMMents team is a collective of veterans in device and software development, looking to tackle this problem.“Mladen and his team are some of the best product designers I’ve ever worked with, and have once again reimagined an important product category,” stated John Sculley, ex-CEO of Apple® and PepsiCo and co-founder of Misfit.
01 uses a proprietary multi-sensor system, requires only one hand to dimension and is the only such device in the world that works on 3D surfaces. Used to de-sign buildings, fit clothes or hang pictures, it helps makers and weekend decora-tors intuitively capture linear or contoured lengths. No charging required; batter-ies last up to six months.Users can also log, search, and share dimensions using the InstruM-Ments iOS and Android apps.Other features include:
•Unit Selection: dynamically convert between metric and imperial.
•Scale: dimension drawings or maps in any scale.
•Quick W-H-D: captures width, height and depth automatically, making dimensioning boxes fast. ‘
•Blink Interval: Set up grids, hang things equally apart or gauge rough dimensions without your phone.
