“The act of taking measurements with Spike saves me 90% of time. I just snap some pictures and I’m done.”

We believe that taking complex measurements shouldn’t require complicated tools

Our vision for Spike is to offer unique measurement capability that augments the power of a smartphone or tablet, and leverages your investment into mobility.

The science of photogrammetry

Spike doesn’t require you to physically access the object you are measuring or manually input any measurements. It doesn’t even require a data connection, expect for when you are ready to export or upload your data. From a single photo, Spike captures a significant amount of data about your position and that of your target object. The Spike laser device connects via Bluetooth with your mobile device, and utilizes your smartphone or tablet’s camera, GPS, compass, and connection to the internet.
