BERLIN, 2021-10-14 – WNDSN Applied Sciences Lab presents a significant update to their main product, a new sighting scale that improves the Telemeter accuracy by 400%. The WNDSN Telemeter is a low-tech, naked-eye distance measuring instrument based on comparing the triangle between our eye and a scale with the triangle between our eye and the object in question.
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” –Henry David Thoreau
In response and in collaboration with users who report problems in sighting accuracy due to the fixed distance between eye and scale that the Telemeter operation requires, WNDSN has developed a new sighting scale inspired by surveyor’s instruments with scale marks in E shape.
For the new sighting scale blocks instead of lines are used as scale marks, filling every other pair of lines with a solid color. This change increases the width of the smallest element which the user can visually discern from 0.25 mm to 1 mm — yielding a fourfold increase in legibility.
To introduce this improved scale, it has been added to the Night Ops Telemeter, which is already optimized for enhanced visibility in the dark. A bestseller ever since its release, the Night Ops Telemeter is a going-back-to-the-roots, bare bones Telemeter in clear acrylic.
The WNDSN Telemeter upgrade is designed to help people with short-sightedness or other visual impairment but it also increases accuracy for users who have no issues sighting with the original scale.
Made in Germany.
WNDSN’s Applied Science Lab, based in Berlin, develops and manufactures that which can’t be improvised; measurement, navigation, and surveying instruments informed by the motto “Ex Mensura, Scientia” — knowledge from measurement.
WNDSN produces archival quality products that are designed with intent by combining techniques proven over centuries; arcane science meets cutting edge contemporary methods, resulting in iconic, timeless, high-utility designs.
In addition to custom-built instruments and tools, metrology & illumination solutions, WNDSN creates expedition mementos and morale patches to celebrate cross-disciplinary exploration in the spirit of the Renaissance. WNDSN morale patches are acutely designed — no line is left to randomness, no element is mere filler. They serve as infographics, how-tos for the WNDSN tools, magic sigils, as well as functional markers.
