What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

The iPin Spatial Ruler Pro is the world's first laser ruler using smartphone camera to measure the distance, line and dimension, plus the height, width, and length (3-axis) of an object in one shot. It is the ultimate optical laser measuring tool designed to make your lives easier for those who need a handy tool that can quickly measure objects on a daily basis. We created the iPin Spatial Ruler Pro to get the measuring job done faster and without any hassle.

 Aim

Turn on the iPin app and simply attach the iPin Spatial Ruler Pro on the back of your smartphone and aim it to the object you want to measure.

 Size 

The picture you took contains all the measurements you need. Adjust the width, length, width, height, and depth manually with your fingertips.

In the past, high corner areas are difficult to reach and measure. Not anymore. With iPin Spatial Ruler Pro, we have created the 3-axis measuring an efficient and new approach to measuring high corner areas, delivering accurate results with confidence.

Hours of tedious hard work are spent organizing data and making drawings. And if you miss something, you have to go back to the work site and do the measurement all over again. With iPin Spatial Ruler Pro, after taking the photo and data, you can repeat the measuring process on any part of the photo whenever you need to. 

 You can also use it alone as a laser range finder to measure distances. 

Easily share photos with measurement data with family, friends, or colleagues via email or WeChat. 

Other features include:

  • Two operation modes - Distance Measure and Photo Dimensioning
  • Self-Carried OLED Display and Rechargeable Battery
  • Low Power Bluetooth 4.2 Connectivity
  • Save Measuring Data With Photos on Mobile Phones

 iPin Spatial Ruler Pro was first developed to resolve the inconvenience of the traditional way of measurement.

In the time consuming process of the traditional forms of measurement, you will need a tape measure, ladder, camera, paper records, and move around in the space every time you need a measurement. 

With your smartphone camera and the iPin Spatial Ruler together, you are free to move from the points to the location of the traditional way of measurement. No need to climb up the ladders or kneel down to touch the ground repeatedly, saving you time and energy through outstanding measuring efficiency. 

Use your smartphone camera to take a photo and record all the measuring data you need and repeat the measuring process on any part of the photo you took whenever you need to with the app.

Risks and challenges

Our team had accomplished the previous two crowdfunding campaigns – the iPin Laser Presenter and iPin Spatial Ruler in past years. We successfully delivered exceptional and innovative products beyond imagination to you.

Although we have a lot of manufacturing experience, we still could face unexpected delay of raw materials...etc. As the saying goes: Just do it! We have the confidence that we can deliver iPin Spatial Ruler Pro to you on time. We will continuously post our progress to you through emails and campaign updates.
