The carpenters of the world might want to consider adding an iPhone holster to their toolbelts. Because Prexiso's new iC4 iPhone accessory promises to make tape measures obsolete, replacing them with an iPhone laser measuring accessory that works alongside an accompanying app.
It assumes that construction types aren't necessarily on the bleeding edge of new technology since the iC4 only works with the iPhone 4S and other iOS devices with the old 30-pin dock connector. Besides improved accuracy, the big benefit of a laser-based measuring system over ultrasonic is that you can easily pinpoint your target with a bright red dot. The iC4 should be available sometime in November when specific pricing details will be announced. So don't toss your old Stanley just yet.
