Metrology in Daily Life

28 May 2013


Metrology is one of those overlooked sciences, perhaps (ironically) because it is so ubiquitous. As it takes in all practical and theoretical aspects of measurement it rubs shoulders alongside the branded sciences, such as mathematics, physics and chemistry. 

The Dutch Metrology Institute has commissioned this very cool video by Studio Smack to show the impact of measurements in our everyday and immediate surroundings.  The word I used in the previous paragraph – ubiquitous – is more than a suitable description of how metrology is an omnipresent force in our lives.  Here we take in something as simple as a daily jog – and metrology can be seen in all of its pervasion.
