GiveMePower and Leica to Unveil Next-Generation Laser-CAD Solution at AIA 2005 National Convention in Las Vegas
Ticker Symbol: GMPW

CALGARY, Alberta & NORCROSS, Georgia -- (Business Wire) -- May 16, 2005



¶ New PowerCAD SiteMaster 2 mobility solution uses Leica DISTO Plus

wireless Bluetooth lasers to create AutoCAD-compatible building

surveys and inspection drawings up to 10 times faster than measuring

tape and paper

¶ GiveMePower Corporation (OTCBB:GMPW) and Leica Geosystems

(SWX:LGSN) will unveil GiveMePower's new PowerCAD(R) SiteMaster(TM) 2

mobile and wireless building surveying solution at the American

Institute of Architects 2005 National Convention and Design Expo this

week in Las Vegas.

¶ Using a Leica DISTO(TM) Plus Bluetooth(R) wireless laser, PowerCAD

SiteMaster speeds the production of precise, AutoCAD(R)-compatible

building surveys, area estimates and inspection drawings by up to 10

times over traditional measuring tape and paper methods, dramatically

improving building measuring, construction and information management

efficiencies for architects, appraisers, contractors, estimators,

facilities managers, property managers, realtors and other

professionals involved in the design, construction and management of

buildings.

¶ "The future is here now," stated Bill Walton, president and CEO of

GiveMePower. "With PowerCAD SiteMaster and a DISTO Plus wireless

laser, anyone can now create professional, AutoCAD-compatible floor

plans, area estimates and inspection drawings 'at the speed of light',

improving field-to-finish productivity by up to 1,000% over the way

they did things before."

¶ Profiled in a recent Microsoft Corporation white paper and

acclaimed as "truly revolutionary" by industry trade publications,

PowerCAD SiteMaster is the first system of its kind to fully automate

the creation of wireless, laser-generated 'as-built' floor plans, area

estimates and inspection drawings for building information

professionals. Using a Leica DISTO(TM) Plus handheld laser, SiteMaster

facilitates instant "point and shoot" creation of detailed,

AutoCAD(R)-compatible drawings anytime and anywhere using a

Bluetooth(R) wireless desktop, laptop or XP tablet PC, or a Windows(R)

Mobile(R) pocket PC, handheld PC or pocket PC cell phone, which

combines the power of a pocket PC with the convenience of a cell

phone.

¶ SiteMaster drawings are created to professional architectural CAD

standards, and include complete as-built floor plan and inspection

information with "intelligently drafted" walls, windows, doors and

symbols, instant room areas and dimensions, and detailed building

inspection observations with digital photographs and hands-free audio

VoiceNOTE(TM) recordings. For maximum efficiency, results can be saved

directly in AutoCAD(R) file formats and sent directly from the jobsite

to customer or company office locations via email or wireless data

transfer.

¶ AIA 2005 convention attendees can view a live demonstration of

PowerCAD SiteMaster 2 at the Leica DISTO booth # 5056 during exhibit

hours on Thursday May 19 through Saturday May 21, 2005.

¶ GiveMePower and Leica jointly market PowerCAD SiteMaster/DISTO

Plus solutions through a network of authorized DISTO(TM) distributors

and dealers and authorized PowerCAD Premier Solution Providers.

Lasermeters.com, North America's largest distributor of DISTO(TM)

lasers and a PowerCAD Premier Solutions Provider, will be offering

special SiteMaster/DISTO prices for AIA attendees.
