What it does

Allows a user to measure the length and width or radius of an arbitrary number of rooms on an arbitrary number of floors on arbitrary buildings

How I built it

Python to connect the US to the pi. Python class to make adding and accessing the MariaDB easy.

Challenges I ran into

Configuring the raspberry pi Configuring the MariaDB server

What I learned

A lot of AWS and MariaDB

What's next for WristTape

Actual miniaturization Probably replacing the ultrasonic sensors with more accurate range finders
