Bagel Is a 21st Century Tape Measure

Tape measures have long been the go-to tool for getting quick measurements, but they don’t work in all situations. Bagel is a digital tape measure that modernizes the antiquated tool, and makes it more useful and easy to use.

Bagel uses a string that can measure length, height, and circumference, along with a 128 x 64 OLED screen that displays the exact measurements in either Imperial or Metric systems. No more counting tiny lines and doing math. Just look at the screen and it tells you the exact length of string you’re using. Aside from that, the “wheel” mode allows you to take measurements by simply moving the device along the surface. It displays the distance the integrated wheel travels, making it easy to measure items using just one hand.

It even has an ultrasonic sensor that can measure the distance from its location to a surface that you mark using the integrated laser pointer. The measurements can even be sent to an accompanying app over Bluetooth, so you can have a record of each measurement saved. It will save 100 measurements with voice memos, and its battery is rated at 8 hours of continuous use.

It can measure up to 10 feet in string mode, up to 33 feet in wheel mode, and up to 16 feet using the ultrasonic sensor. It’s too bad that string mode and ultrasonic mode can’t measure longer distances like standalone products, but Bagel is much more versatile than those. Every toolbox should have one. A Kickstarter pledge of at least $69(USD) will get you a Bagel of your very own.
