Meet Carta: The World’s First Digital Measuring Wheel To Virtually Map Any Outdoor Space

Plott, creators of the “LetsPlott” Platform – the world’s only DIY platform that allows users to take their real design concepts into the AR realm and back to reality with precise measurements and calculations, is announcing the availability of Carta at CES 2020, the latest addition to Plott’s Extended Reality tools. Carta is the first digital measuring wheel to virtually map any outdoor space utilizing the revolutionary LetsPlott platform, winner of the Best of Innovation AR/VR in the CES 2019 Innovation Awards. Carta lets users create maps in real-time and instantly calculate distance, perimeter and area, ensuring accurate measurements for virtually any outdoor project, including landscaping, construction, road building and more.

Before Carta, measuring large areas would require multiple professionals and an inherent risk of incorrect measurements that ultimately left users with painstaking calculations and no visible context. Plott’s new hardware makes measuring and calculating spaces easier, interactive and more intuitive. From idea, to design, then back to reality, see for yourself at ShowStoppers how Plott’s award-winning technology and tools for anyone from the beginner DIY landscaper to professional construction worker, simplifies creative projects.

The LetsPlott Platform Takes a Home Improvement Project from Idea, To Virtual, To Reality

Plott’s award-winning Extended Reality (XR) Platform known as “LetsPlott” allows users to conceptualize, design and measure in the AR virtual world, then bring their vision to life with actionable, turn-by-turn directions by making the designs actionable for real world creations. The LetsPlott Platform eliminates the headaches and hassle of measurements and calculations, making it the perfect tool for everyone from the rookie to the veteran DIYer, and allowing more time for transforming ideas into reality.  Simply measure and design in the Lets Plott app and the integrated Cubit or Carta hardware will guide users to precise, real world points to complete their project.

Why Plott?:

  • The Virtual: The LetsPlott app allows user to quickly and easily measure, then import dimensions into an AR design space where they can customize their project. Using these real world measurements and imagery, Users can see exactly how a project will look before building it.
  • The Reality: After conceptualizing, measuring and designing in AR, the Plott hardware gives turn-by-turn directions to real world points, guided by a virtual layout that assists in transforming the finalized design into a physical project in any space.
  • The Ultimate Home Improvement Tools: 80% of first time DIYers fail to measure accurately on their first attempt and simply do not want to pursue another project. The LetsPlott Platform eliminates that burden and provides hyper accurate calculations that seamlessly transition from the digital space to the real world.
