Saw this posted by the designer on the "3D Printing Useful Things!" Facebook group:

It's called a "screw sizer" and basically lets you measure or quickly identify the random screws and nuts and bolts you have lying in a drawer or box in your shed.

I used use a digital calipers bit this seems much faster!

The horizontal part is a ruler which is tricky to see in that photo.

There's a few versions of it including a metic and imperial one and some others.

Great idea but what's with the video, like it cuts off before it's finished

These new 4K & 1080P Nebula projectors by Anker will be amazing if they can pull it off.

^^^ Please excuse my ignorance. I read through this picture, but don't quite understand how the converted audio speech helps a deaf person? Or am I completely missing something?

What am I missing here

The RRP for 1080 is $699, 900 Lumens and 4K is $1699 r 1500 Lumens and the "3D" speakers are built in rather than separate.

It's the native 4k resolution without upscaling.

None of the ones I looked at on richer sounds are native 4k.

The android TV. integration ups the cost also. I'm not saying it's not overpriced of anything but it will be a cool feat if they can pull of 4k with a small projector.

Unless they start making DLP chips themselves all they will be doing is what the Chinese will do. Sticking an off the shelf component in to a cheap box.

Android TV isn't magic. Compare to the cost of a 4K chip and the spec needed to run 4K it's just extra firmware.

Absolutely in love with Orba by Artiphon already and its only in the Kickstarter phase!
You can make beats on the go with it thanks to its built in samples and synth sounds and looper, connect it via bluetooth to its native app on your smart device and 3rd party apps for the even more sounds
Use it as a mini keyboard and expressivity controller via USB C MIDI or bluetooth meaning you can connect it to your pc and hardware synths via a MIDI host.
Its an amazingly simple but flexible little device, that will be a hit all age groups, music therapists, live performers, the list is endless! And its quite affordable too.
Cant wait to get my habns on it after launch.
