- You take a picture with Measure Mate (which is really two pictures: one from each lens).
- Measure Mate superimposes the images one atop the other to create a new picture.
- You select an object to which you want to know the distance in the new picture.
- Measure Mate triangulates the distance to the object based on the distance between the two lenses.
Measure Mate should be extremely cheap and easy to program – all the formulas already exist and all the technological concepts already exists. The most expensive budget item would probably be copyright protection for the app. I also think the potential market for Measure Mate is virtually limitless, from civilian to military markets, who wouldn’t pay just a few dollars for this piece of product innovation? Or forget about selling it, make it a free app and capitalize from advertising.
