HOZO MEAZOR 6-in-1 multifunctional laser measurer, reviewed

This product was created by  Meazor as a result of a crowdfunding campaign. This can be a good way to go about doing things, as it is then both a direct response to a specific  need, and, if successful also a direct validation that this is something that people would like to use too. It certainly peaked interest among our team too, especially among those who have and are using tape measures, and laser distance measuring tools to make plans and do home renovation works.  For review purposes we may well be looking at a pre-release version too, so that is an important caveat in what it is, and, in the future, may be capable of.

There are a lot of good online resources to help explain what the tool does, and how to use it. We found the explainer videos pretty good.  The privacy settings also seem to sensitively calibrated, to not collect data that is personally identifiable. The basic concept is a win though, to be able to capture floor plans, and then turn them instantly  into digital files. I’m sure many of us have measured, and then remeasured room details, as we can’t find the piece of paper where we wrote down those measurements. You can see why this device potentially solves a relevant pinpoint instantly.

We are still playing around with it, but initially it is a hit. You will need to download the app to get the full functionality out of the device. But that is logical and no hardship. Measurements can then be blue toothed over to your device, to enable you to look at them on a bigger screen. This is a logical but great attribute to have, it almost seems like a no brainer, but then good ideas often are.

More about the product

Hozo Design MEAZOR
With a sleek, compact and attractive design with a durable aluminium-alloyed frame, the MEAZOR has been exquisitely engineered to fit seamlessly into creative lifestyles and is currently the smallest 2D laser room scanner in the world.

Whilst the device is ideal for creative professionals, designers and architects, MEAZOR has also been meticulously designed to be used in everyday life, to make measuring easier and more enjoyable for all.

The 184 PPI tempered glass touch screen and 4096 grade magnetic encoder are built to last, providing high-grade durability and stability for rolling function. The 650mAh battery also supports up to 30 days of wireless use on a single charge and supports USB-C charging.

The MEAZOR boasts an incredible array of impressive features and is truly the first of its kind. A unique 2D floor scanning capability enables users to perform precise measuring for high-end floorplans in seconds, as the device can simply be rotated 360°.

The built-in rolling measurer ensures that every last detail is measured precisely, from straight edges to detailed arcs using the curve scanning function. It also has the ability to convert metric and imperial units and even customised scales.

The laser distance measurer records reliable measurements of up to 25 metres/80 feet, putting MEAZOR leagues above conventional laser measurement devices. Additional features include a built-in bubble level, protractor, curve scanner and pro laser.

The MEAZOR laser measurer is available to purchase from the HOZO Design website for $199/£150, with worldwide shipping.
