This intelligent tape measure may be the world’s smartest1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Filmmakers out there take note! Regular tape measures are so last year. Forward-thinking creators (and anyone who needs to measure anything) should turn to Bagel, the “smart” tape measure. It also looks vaguely like a bagel. Sort of. Bagel is up on Kickstarter looking to raise US$30,000 to bring you a digital tape measure that offers three different measuring modes, the ability to save measurements, record voice memos and even sync data with its companion mobile app.
You can utilise Bagel’s string mode to obtain measurements more akin to analog tools up to 10 feet with strong Dyneema string that can withstand up to 112 lbs (approx 50Kg). Alternatively, you can use Bagel’s wheel mode to roll it on its side and measure curved distances with one hand. You can also use the remote mode, which features a laser pointer and allows you to measure horizontal and vertical distances.
