Smart Finger measures without tape

Smart Finger measures without tape



This might be a sign that we’re all getting just a little spoiled when it comes to our touchscreen.  All of this just moving around your fingers to enlarge an image is just too much luxury for the human race.  Now people are even getting to the point where they don’t want to bother with measuring tape.  Instead you just pick up a couple of finger covers and they’ll do the measuring for you.  No tape necessary.
The Smart Finger is made out of silicon to make it possible to wear it with any finger size.  It manages to measure length, breadth and volume all through pushing a few little buttons.  Once it measures the distance it’ll display it through LED.  It measures by the basis of the time taken by the signal to beam from one finger to the other and back again.  Right now this is obviously a concept, but it is an insteresting one to say the least.
