The idea for TakeMeasure had come from a practical need. The founder had been about to fly with a new piece of luggage with dimensions enforcing airliner. He had realised he had got no ruler at home and that was the moment when the research for TakeMeasure started.
Is it possible to measure lengths of things by using just a camera?
Almost, you will just need a reference object: sheet of paper, wallet card or a banknote. Then you can measure anything in the same plane in which the reference object lies. Best to see the examples or a short video at our website.
Can I measure objects from any angle?
Yes, indeed from any angle. Thanks to the mathematics of projective geometry. TakeMeasure allows you to measure dimensions of any small or large objects that fit into your camera view. Highlight a reference and leave the algorithm to do the rest.
