In the face of potential high-frequency disturbances, low tech becomes valuable as a backup or main tool.
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.
What this means is 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 Telemeter is easily carried in a wallet or in its own pouch and can be used to measure arbitrary lengths since the degree scale happens to double as a centimeter scale. The instrument is handmade and manufactured in the spirit of astronomical instruments of the Renaissance, built by the likes of Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, and Gemma Frisius.
