Pioneering P1 Laser Distance Meter

Automate the way you calculate distance when you use the Pioneering P1 Laser Distance Meter by MyAntenna. This incredibly handy device uses a laser to give you precise measurements instantly. The P1 is actually the smallest laser distance meter and is designed to replace the archaic traditional tape measure. To use the P1, simply turn it on and direct the laser onto to point whose distance you want to measure. The P1 instantly gives you the measurement in real time using the built-in display. In addition, you can press the power button again to pause the measurement and retain the number in the display. You can also use the Auto Fetch function to give yourself 10 seconds to set up what you want to measure. Finally, the P1 can switch between metric and imperial as you need. With a range of 130 feet, the P1 can handle it all.

Help! My Pi now always thinks it is measuring with KIWI on. How can that be fixed??

The product is so good. I like the overall finish, packaging, and even shipping. If anyone talks about this product, I would definitely recommend it. Well done!

@Ofri - I didn't mean change the default for everyone, I meant it would be nice if the individual could set the default for their Pi.

Backer from Israel.
I see most of the backers received theirs, I don't even have a tracking number yet.
Is that normal?

I've backed the P1 + Kiwi bundle and may I know when the shipment for Malaysia will be sent out because I have yet to receive any tracking information.

Review from Kickstarter
My P1 + Kiwi arrived a couple of days ago. Just getting around to trying it out. I have a couple of comments and criticisms. 1) Feet measurement should be feet and inches. Decimal feet is not useful to most North American people. This is actually a really big deal. Can you change the firmware so that at least the option of feet plus inches is available? Or simply replace the decimal feet with feet plus inches. Inches display: could either be decimal inches (less useful for most people) or fractional inches (1/16", 1/8", 3/16", etc). Most useful would be able to select either method. 2) The packaging is gorgeous. However, I would much rather have received a simple nylon pouch inside a plain cardboard box. In other words, a carrying case that keeps the Kiwi with the P1 and protects both from damage and dirt would have been greatly appreciated. The unit itself looks good so far. Now I need to test its range and accuracy.

I received my P1 + Kiwi a few days ago but got around to testing it today. I must say I was surprised with the size of it. I thought it would be much bigger but this is just too damn perfect. I also love the beautiful craftsmanship, the attention to detail and the overall build. I feel so powerful just holding the thing that I start to measure just about anything. Anyway, love the product and it’s usefulness. Thank you guys for delivering this awesome little tool and being perfect with executing the campaign. I’m definitely backing your upcoming projects. Great work.

Just received mine in Israel! (Actually it arrived some time ago but we had holiday here so just toda I've had the time to pick it up). Got to see Im in love with my P1! As I'm writing this I'm in the middle of measuring everything in the house, it's a toy for big boys ;) and it couldn't arrive at a better time since we need a new refrigerator and the P1 already helped me to get the measurements of my Nish in the kitchen for it.

Hey guys, I received my P1 but I never received the kiwi upgrade I had paid for. Looking forward to taking it it if the box and testing it out this weekend!

Backer in Singapore. Received mine today. Packaging is ok. Tried it a few times and result is good. Can’t wait to measure our pool with this device.

@hj Of the two I received, only one came with the manual. @creator should consider uploading the instruction manual for those without it. Maybe include it in an update meant for backers only?

backer from Sg. I have received mine yesterday. Haven't tested it out, but it's strange that there's no instruction manual in my package. Does anyone has the same issue? or is it just me?

@Rita and team, Hi guys! I've just received my parcel containing 2 P1 + Kiwi, today :) Thank you making the effort to pack them well. I just realised that it was shipped from Sweden, no wonder it took quite some time to arrive. I've opened both boxes to check and everything looks great. Now got to find myself some batteries to try them with.

@jaso green Why should they change the default from metric to imperial? 95% of the world is using metric! even in your home country (USA I'm guessing) all big (international) companies are using metric by default for whatever they do. Its should be kept Metric by default period, or they could for the next version have an option for us to select the default system but they most definitely should not make imperial as the default measurement.

Backer # 104 - received my P1 + KIWI in Singapore just few minutes back - the package came in via regular post with no tracking... packaging looks decent, haven't tested it yet!
Jason Green
Review from Kickstarter
Received mine a week ago. Great tool. Two recommendations - instead of using a fraction of a foot after the decimal (i.e. 1.5 for 1 foot, 6 inches) it would be better to have feet, then inches, then a fraction (i.e. 1' 6.5" for 1 foot, 6 and 1/2 inches). Hopefully that makes sense. Also, it would be nice if you could change the default from metric to imperial so it doesn't need to be switched every time. Maybe those are improvements for the next model! Ultimately though, these are small issues. Really enjoying the Pi, thank you for a quick, well-executed Kickstarter campaign!

Hi,
Could you provide me an update.
My local post company told me there is a package available and I do have to provide them costs of purchase but I do not not whether it is my my package or not !
This is absolutely not handy as I have two kickstarter deliveries.

Have only installed batteries, so not tested yet.
Oh, Why must instructions be printed so tiny.
Saving paper and ink???

I didn't get an instruction manual, can someone please tell me how to change the units and how to use the different functions if there are any. All I have tested it out for is seeing if it correctly measures my height and then convert the units (it was pretty spot on) but I would love to try it out for different things and not have to convert the units every time. Thanks!

Received mine.
All is good... except the disappointing accuracy. Error of 4mm for lenghts until 1m. I haven't test more lenght. Can we correct it? It's alot of more than the +/-2mm precision announced.

I'm Backer #191 in the U.S. and I'm still waiting on mine. Many people in the U.S. get theirs? I Backer the P1 + Kiwi.

Update: have tested mine and it is working pretty good. Now for the v2 (if there will be one) you should consider connecting it to the phone with an app allowing to save all measuring ;) (well for the lazy people like me at least)

St Sinclair
Review from Kickstarter
US: Got mine and I love it! The only feedback I have for a future version is have a separate toggle for units, the triple tap is tricky and usually leads to setting off the timer function. Additionally add a way to default Metric vs. Ft. Also, if you can figure out how to display ft and inches with fractions that would be huge! I’d definitely by a gen 2 version if it had those features and I know a lot of other friends who would do the same. The longshot feature: Add Bluetooth functionality to trigger a measurement and to record readings! I still like this version, it’s accurate and looks good as well! My colleagues have been messing with all morning.

Got mine. Batteries are not provided. Used it and found very useful. Works as described and i am really happy to back this project.
Yves Grethen
Review from Kickstarter
Just got mine... but the batteries are missing... Guess they have been taken out at the customs because there was label that the package contained stuff not allowed by EU... (something about security)... So I can't test now and have to wait until I am home later.
