Android Measure is a free app from Google that uses your camera and augmented reality to measure any object. It’s really cool.
Sometimes you quickly want to measure something but you don’t have a tape measure handy. The idea behind Android Measure is that you can use your phone instead: just open the app, move your phone around a little, then indicate which points you’d like to measure.

What You Can Do With Android Measure
Measure helps you with quick, everyday measurements around the house or office — similar to a tape measure. With the Measure app, you can:
– Measure the length and height of objects in the real world like the size of a rug, the width of a cabinet, or the height of a table
– Switch between imperial and metric units
– Save photos of your measurements for later
Move your phone around the space to find flat surfaces such as tabletops or the floor. Then drag a length tool or height tool into the scene, and adjust it to the right size. Tap the camera icon to snap a photo for later, or tap the trash icon to start a new measurement.
There’s a lot of elaborate math at work here, and it seemed to work great in various brief tests conducted. Apple made an app with the same name for iPhone a while back, so check that out if you’re an iPhone user.
