Smartphones have replaced cameras, MP3 players, pedometers, remote controls, and even notebooks. Whatever you want to do, there’s probably already an app for that. And with Smart Picture Technologies’ up-and-coming app, you can now toss that old roll of measuring tape because you can use your phone (and their app) instead.
To measure the length of an object, just take a picture of it and the app will do the rest. The app works by generating a “smart picture” of the object once you take a picture of it. You can then choose any two points in the picture (in this case, you should choose the start and end of the object) and the app will give you the distance between those two points.
Other apps have promised to do the same, but this seems to be the real deal. The app is slated for release next year.
