iPin Spatial Ruler Pro Smartphone Laser Ruler

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2018-05-25

Use your smartphone to measure an object with the iPin Spatial Ruler Pro Smartphone Laser Ruler. Offering fast and accurate laser measuring, this ruler allows you to shoot first and measure later. Compatible with iOS and Android devices, the laser ruler uses your camera to measure the distance, dimensions, and line of an object with just one shot. To use the ruler, attach the iPin Pro to the back of your smartphone and turn on the iPin app. Then aim it at any object you want to measure and take a photo with your smartphone camera. The picture will contain all the measurements you’re after. You can also adjust the length, width, height, and depth manually by using your fingers. Furthermore, the iPin Pro doubles as a laser range finder, allowing you to use it on its own to measure distances.

@Michael - The laser measurement starts from the back of the Ruler Pro. Therefore, the thickness of the case is not an issue.
Conary Fair
Review from Kickstarter
@Michael - Yes, you can use the iPin Pro on top of an iPhone case. We'll get back to you about your question on calibration. @赵意如 - The Top Cities only list the top cities where our backers come from so that means China is not included in the top. Thank you all for the support!

Hello Creator, "Where Backers Come From Top Cities "why is there no China? I'm a Chinese supporter.

Review from Kickstarter
Is it possible to use iPin pro on top of an iPhone case? Is there a calibration function to compensate the thickness of an iPhone case?
Looking forward to receive my iPin Pro.
Greetings from Germany

@Tom - The magnetic attachment of ruler pro needs a piece of metal piece attach to the back of phone and it will interfere the wireless charging. An alternative method is just holding the iPin while taking the photo. Thanks for your support!

Won’t the pin attached in back of phone interfere with iPhone X self charging?

@Frank - The App offers both English and Metric units in centimeter, meter, inch, and foot. Thanks for your support!

Review from Kickstarter
What are the units of measurement?

Review from Kickstarter
@Creator, thanks for the quick reply. Looking forward to the curve feature.
Conary Fair
Review from Kickstarter
@Lars - The curve measurement mode is something we can add to the features in the nearest future. It is the mathematics issue to calculate the three points data of a curve. Thanks for your support!
Lars
Review from Kickstarter
@Creator, what I can see, all the measurements between two points is made up of a straight line, is it possible to measure an arc or curved surface between 2 points being able to measure a radius or diameter? Thanks.

@Michael - We're not sure what you mean by furniture in-situ but we're getting our team to look into this and get back to you. If you can elaborate more that would be great! @Matthias - Our plan for fulfillment is to use DHL and it does not cover any applicable import taxes and customs duties. @Creations Foundry - We did some research on Spike and created this comparison chart - https://imgur.com/a/GkvX2np. On our campaign video at 1:05, we show how it works. Please watch it and let us know if that helps! :) Thank you all for the support!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Creator, Can you provide more info on how the iPin Pro works? Such as the principles behind it? Would you be able to provide some comparison with the Spike? Hi Stevans Tandei, I have the Spike, I didn't really use it much, but it does work pretty well, the only thing is that it can't work without a phone.
Matthias Rost
Review from Kickstarter
Hi creator. I’ve the same question as @EpicViking. What’s with custom clearance / import fees?
Michael Lucey
Review from Kickstarter
Just curious as to how iPin Pro handles rooms with furniture in-situ?

Hello iPin Pro, I am intending to use it for Wi-Fi surveys and interior measurements. Looking forward to this promising product.

Review from Kickstarter
@Wei - Thanks for your support and feedback! We love hearing how people will use our product which helps us to deliver products everyone will love.

Review from Kickstarter
I would like to suggest using the distances at a few points on the photo and storing it in photos. In the future, I can use the company’s APP to use the multi-point scale on personal computers to obtain certain distances in the photo.
Hopefully, it's not just like an ordinary rangefinder. It's just one end of the measurement. It can be saved, and it can be recalled in the future.

@赵意如 - Thanks for your support! Your feedback is extremely important to us so we will definitely keep this in mind.

Review from Kickstarter
I'm going to use it in the interior design!

Review from Kickstarter
This product feels really very practical! Can you consider adding Chinese to software and instructions later?

Review from Kickstarter
@EpicViking - Double checking this with our fulfillment team and get back to you.
EpicViking
Review from Kickstarter
@Conary Fair, the question is if I have to pay custom charges/import fees
Conary Fair
Review from Kickstarter
@EpicViking - The product works in EU countries and we ship to EU. Does this answer your question?
EpicViking
Review from Kickstarter
Is this project EU friendly?

@Paul - You're right! Thanks so much for your support, Paul. Here's a photo to show how the iPin Pro attaches to the back of your phone. https://imgur.com/zvu8rOr (not sure why the text isn't showing up, but check out our first update and it's there).

Giveaways are not the reason people are backing you. Just put out a good product and we'll be fine. Also, I see people are asking how the device attaches to the phone. I was wondering the same thing.

@Stevans - Here's a quick comparison chart to show difference between iPin Spatial Ruler Pro and Stanley Smart Measure Pro. https://imgur.com/a/uDIG2qh Thanks for your support! @Lars - Thanks so much! You're the best!

I just shared your project on LinkedIn to help spread the word.

Review from Kickstarter
@Conary Fair How is your difference with other smart measurement such as Stanley Smart Measure Pro? @Creators Foundry Do you have the Spike ike? What do you think about it? Do you have the review?

Review from Kickstarter
@Creations Foundry - Thanks for sharing about the other project similar to ours. We will get back to you with our comparison to this asap. @James - Thanks for your feedback. We have set the initial Super Early Bird to only 100 units but due to demand and since we are still in the very early days (we just launched less than 2 days ago), we want to give more people a chance to get this offer. Also, it is totally allowed on Kickstarter to increase reward limit. (https://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/creator+questions#faq_41832) Thanks for your support!
James Nicholson
Review from Kickstarter
Hi guys,
You keep extending the early bird special - which is great for everyone but surely it means its not really an 'early bird' special if everyone has it. It was 100 people, then 200 now 300 - it takes the mockery out of getting a great value early bird special. I owuld have thought this was not something you can do?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Creator, I backed something similar some years ago, it was one of the first projects I backed, how different is yours from this? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ikegps/spike-laser-accurate-measurement-and-modelling-on
Thanks
Conary Fair
Review from Kickstarter
@B - We recommend to use the range finder mode to measure and use the data into the blueprint, but not the photo dimensioning mode. The photo dimensioning accuracy is really depend on the photo quality and smartphone camera module. In short, the better photo quality, the more accurate photo dimensioning measurement. We are still working on optimization to improve user experience now.
B.
Review from Kickstarter
Also how precise is it? If for exemple you take measurements in a room, it is probably because you need to add furniture, or a new window, is your product that precise ? Or does it give rough estimates, that is perfect to get a general idea, but not enough to use as a blueprint basis? Thanks in advance for your answer.
Conary Fair
Review from Kickstarter
@B - Definitely!

Review from Kickstarter
Could you get back to US (not to one backer, but to all of us) about the way your product is attached to the phone? Thanks.
Conary Fair
Review from Kickstarter
@BG - Thanks for your support! We totally understand your concerns. We are indeed based in Taiwan, however, Kickstarter is currently not available in Taiwan. So we have our Conary representative launch the campaign in Canada. Feel free to email us at crowdfunding@ipinlaser.com if you have other concerns. We will get back to you with some detailed answers about the phone attachment.
Conary Fair
Review from Kickstarter
@Tom - Thanks for your support! The accuracy of distance is is ±3 mm, same as other range finders. Photo sizing is calculated from the pixels of the image in the camera shot so the better the images taken, the better the accuracy.
BG
Review from Kickstarter
How does it attach to the back of the phone? Wondering if this it too good to be true. The website shows main location in Taiwan but the kickstarter raise is out of Canada! I would like to see more details before the campaign ends please.

Review from Kickstarter
How accurate will this be?
