Wndsn Telemeter Introduction

Idea and principle.

A tool for makeshift navigation and rangefinding, the flagship Wndsn Telemeter enables you to do more than merely guessing distances. Find an object of known size at the distance you need to measure and let the baked in trigonometry do the rest for you; all by aligning the provided string across the scales.

About Wndsn Telemeters

In the face of potential high-frequency disturbances, low tech becomes valuable as a backup or main tool.

All the calculations, trigonometry, and maths you need - hidden in a piece of string. Our flagship distance nomographs revive ancient technologies and unite them for the first time in one low tech, high value instrument.

The string, the special setup of the measuring scale, and the trigonometry in the calculating scales are doing the work, thus preventing mental calculation error and eliminating the need for specific mathematical knowledge.

Calculating with the Nomograph scales.

A tool for makeshift navigation and rangefinding, the flagship Wndsn Telemeter enables you to do more than merely guessing distances. Find an object of known size at the distance you need to measure and let the baked in trigonometry do the rest for you; all by aligning the provided string across the scales.

This means that you can copy dimensions from the real world onto a small ruler in your hand and read the matching distances directly from the engraved scale.

The credit-card sized brass Telemeter is easily carried in a wallet and can be used to measure arbitrary lengths since the degree scale happens to double as a centimeter scale.
