Bilateral Laser Distance Measurer

Bilateral Laser Distance Measurer

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.

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?
