‘Smart’ tape measure works in three modes

Bagel tap measure in string mode

When is a bagel not bagel?

When it’s a multi-function, Bluetooth-connected tape measure. No, seriously!

The Bagel is a smart tape that measures in three ways:

  • Using a retractable string
  • By rolling it on a small wheel
  • With a built-in laser pointer connected to an ultrasound device

In each of these modes, measurements are stored in the Bagel’s memory. You can also store brief voice recordings, which are converted to text. Measurements and memos can be sent to an iOS or Android device.

Bagel has Kickstarter campaign, where a pledge of $59 will get you one. The planned retail price is $89.
