The Wndsn XPD Distance Nomograph
All the Calculations, Trigonometry, and Maths you Need – Hidden in a Piece of String. Our flagship product revives ancient technologies and unites them for the first time in one low tech, high value instrument.
Inspired by both the medieval Kamal, a celestial navigation tool that greatly facilitated latitude sailing, as well as nomography, an almost lost art and science invented in the late 19th century to provide engineers with fast graphical calculations of complicated formulas, the Wndsn XPD Distance Nomograph combines both techniques in an easy to use and handy distance measuring device.
The credit-card sized brass distance nomograph is handmade and manufactured in the spirit of astronomical instruments of the age of discovery, built by the likes of Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, and Gemma Frisius.
