What happens when a pocket calculator and a tape measure have a baby? Why, a Smart String Tape Measure. By the way, that’s the name of the product: Smart String. It’s basically a tape measure for passionate handymen who need precise figures in their work. Powered by a couple of lithium batteries, the Smart String is a compact tool that also bothers with calculating measurements.
See above how it shows the exact measurement just by wrapping stuff around or extending the string. Astounding. Other than that, its 50 feet of string can handle 20 pounds of weight. It’s also ideal for construction and other labor intensive activities where precision is the crucial factor that determines the success of the work done. That, and utility.
It’s also fantastic for people who want to dispose of those age old yellow tape measures and go high tech. The Smart String looks perfect for measuring your waist, especially during those times when your pants are getting tighter and there’s the dread prospect of having to go on a diet. Who likes dieting? Actually dieting is good for you. Go diet.
An excellent gadget for grocers, carpenters, people who work with their hands in general, and the weight conscious, the Smart String isn’t the bleeding edge of innovation but it’s really useful.
