We all measure size in our daily lives and the way we measure has remained the same for more than a century. Bagel is a digital tape measure that measures, helps organize, and analyze any size measurements in a smart way. It even saves measurements, records voice memos, and sends data to its mobile app.
It has three different measuring modes:
- string mode allows to measure length like you would with a traditional tape measuring curved objects and surfaces, various body types, and- needless to say- flat surfaces. This mode can measure up to about 3 meters.
- wheel mode is good, when you don’t have both hands available to measure length or distance. This mode for measuring distance on curved surfaces and is up to about 10 meters.
- remote mode allows to measure the distance to areas that are far away or hard to reach. This mode automatically activates a laser that points at your target spot to indicate where you are measuring and is up 5 meters.
You can connect it to your smartphone via Bluetooth and transfer all of your measurements to the mobile app, which is available for iOS and Android platforms. The app gives ability to export all the data as CSV to use it on the computer. Bagel also has internal memory that can save up to 100 measurements and voice memos. It is built with a lithium polymer battery that lasts up to 24 hours and averages 8 hours with constant use and chargeable via micro USB cable.
This tape is currently the subject of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, where a pledge of $69 will get you one. Estimated shipping is on November of 2016.
