Smart String

My Sting is smarter than your String!

Sounds like a challenge doesn’t it. Well, you better send your string to college because the string I have is pretty smart!

A friend of mine, Herb at HDA Design just sent me one of these as a test to see how I liked it. I like it a lot!

This is a crazy little device that is a calculator with a string inside. The device is smaller than an iPhone and extremely light. It also has a level and mini flash light built in.

How Smart is it?

To get started you simply hold the “On” button for 2 seconds – then it comes on. You have two choices, calculator mode and measure mode. There is one button on the keypad that toggles you back and forth between the two. To measure you simply pull out the string and measure what you want, even around the circumference of a tire or the size of a box. The string can be locked open with a simple slider switch on the top of the devise.

There are three red buttons to record measurements. You pull out the string and measure what ever you want and then hit the red 1/H button for the first measurement; take the second measurement and hit red button 2/W; do the same with the third measurement and hit red button 3/D.

After you have the dimensions you want, switch back to Calc mode for the add, subtract, multiply, divide..etc functions. You can use the stored dimensions to calculate the volume of the box or the area of a square etc.

A final price has not yet been set and depends on the quantity you want to purchase. However, I have been assured it is no more than a regular calculator. The inventor, Jeff Freed hopes it will be a big hit as a promotional item. The billboard advertisement on the front can be customized to include your logo! I think the Legendary Collector Car logo would look terrific on there!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
