TEL AVIV, Israel and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vayyar Imaging (http://vayyar.com), the 3D-imaging sensor company whose technology makes it possible to see through objects, liquids, and materials, today announced the launch of a 3D imaging tool for consumers, WalabotDIY. Created especially for the home renovator, construction worker, and DIY enthusiast, WalabotDIY gives users 'Superman-vision' to see through drywall, cement and other materials to determine the location of pipes, wires, and even rodents' nests. Available exclusively in the United States at launch, the power of 3D imaging is now available to consumers in the palm of their hand for the first time. See a short video of how WalabotDIY works here.
"WalabotDIY takes the guesswork out of your next renovation or repair project. It makes all kinds of home repair and renovation tasks easier – everything from hanging a gallery wall, mounting shelving, locating a pesky leak or drilling into a wall without the fear of hitting a pipe or electrical wire," said Raviv Melamed, CEO and co-founder, Vayyar Imaging. "While there are many use cases for Vayyar's 3D imaging technology, one of the highest demands we have had is from the home renovation market where 3D imaging makes a wide variety of tasks much easier."
How WalabotDIY works
WalabotDIY is compatible with all Android smartphones 5.0 and higher, equipped with USB OTG, and connects magnetically to the back of the phone. After downloading the WalabotDIY app via Google Play and a short calibration process, WalabotDIY can be used to scan the wall, and the wall images are then projected on the smartphone's screen. WalabotDIY also helps users know precisely how deep to cut or how far to drill to avoid damaging pipes, wires, and objects hidden behind walls. Its robust 3D imaging sensors detect both the depth and location of objects and easily 'sees' through up to four inches or 10 centimeters of concrete or drywall. WalabotDIY also features an adjustable sensitivity setting for optimal calibrations on specific renovation and construction projects, offers two sensing modes of pipes and raw data, and can easily snap photo screenshots for use in offline analysis.
Vayyar's powerful sensor technology will also enable added features for WalabotDIY in the future. Additional applications will be available via Google Play and will integrate seamlessly with the existing WalabotDIY tool as they are announced and released.
WalabotDIY retails for $299 USD, but for a limited time early adopters can take advantage of a special $199 USD introductory launch price. To order WalabotDIY or learn more, visit http://walabot.com/diy.
