Crowdsourcing Mornings: PIE: Smart Tape Measure for Your Body

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

With PIE, body size measuring is as easy as pie. Wrap the retractable tape around the body part you wish to measure and use the easy-lock hook to securely fasten the tape. You can also fine-tune the tightness of the tape by scrolling its gear. Press the save button to send your measurement to PIE’s mobile app on your smartphone.  PIE works with its dedicated app that syncs your size measurements. You can also set a goal and look at the trend for different body parts. We recommend measuring once every few weeks at the same time, after you wake up and before you have your breakfast, for consistency.

Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain muscle or become more toned, taking body size measurements can help keep you motivated to continue pushing towards your goals. See yourself in a better mirror with PIE’s app available for iOS and Android, so you can find and stay on the right path.   PIE uses a retractable fiberglass tape that is perfect for measuring your body. The flexible tape extends up to 59in (150cm) and comes printed with both imperial and metric markings. Its cross-fiberglass construction provides extra strength and durability.  PIE’s easy-lock hook mechanism makes it easy to measure your body all by yourself. Simply push the tape tip into PIE’s hook to create a loop around any part of your body.

As of May 22nd, this project has raised $50,000 of their $30,000 goal. This project has 25 days left to raise as much as it can.  For a pledge of $49, you will get one PIE tape measure.  For a pledge of $94, you will get two PIE tape measures.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
