Rollbe: A Super Compact, Stainless Steel Measuring Tool

Are you ever out somewhere and you try to figure out if something like a piece of furniture will fit in your house or if you need to measure a box for shipping? You don’t always have a ruler or measuring tape handy because they’re not the most compact things to have lying around. Karlis Krisjans has created a convenient solution, called the Rollbe, that’s super compact and at the ready for when you need to measure things.

Rollbe is a stainless steel rolling ruler that’s designed to measure most anything – both straight lines and curved. It comes in two sizes – a super compact version that’s 4 inches and 10 cm, and a larger 8 inch and 20 cm model.

Rollbe has a successful Kickstarter campaign you can check out if you’re interested.
