WORLDKINGS - On This Day - July 14, 2022 - Alvin J Fellows patents tape measure in 1868

12-07-2022

(Worldkings.org) On July 14, 1868, a Connecticut man named Alvin J. Fellows patented the spring-click tape measure. The difference between his tape measure and the ones that came before was a “spring-click,” in the words of the patent, that allowed the user to lock the tape measure when it was extended, “so as to hold the tape at any desired position.”

    WORLDKINGS - Daily Highlights - May 30, 2018 - PIE: Smart Tape Measure for Your Body

    30-05-2018

    (Worldkings.org) The engineers at Bagel Labs developed the Bagel as a smart tape measure in 2016. Their basic complaint was the idea that users spend too much time trying to read tape measures and that takes away from evaluating and acting on the measurements. The Korean group is back again with PIE, another smart tape measure but geared toward the body.
