[access-uk] Talking Tape Measure

Ian, If my memory serves me right it's about the same price as the Cobolt one, but it's better for a few reasons.

Well Ian thinks this discovery with the light probe is really interesting Andy.

I bought mine from the address you posted for Debbie, but I got a phone number and rang my order. They also do a good alternative talking tape-measure to the Cobolt one in case anybody is interested. It is also very good.

For me, if it is held directly under a ceiling light, it makes the same
high
pitched sound it does for natural light -

| Now you've done it Steve.  Ian is running about with the Colorino
testing
| natural and artificial light (smile.)  Very clever that.  I never knew
you
| could do that with it as I don't use the light probe bit of it much.

| Hi Andy,
|
| Not only that, but the light probe can tell you whether it is natural or
| artificial light.  If you hear a buzzing kind of sound in the note, then
the
| light is artificial, but if it is a pure note, then the light is
natural.
| To hear the difference, first turn on a light, and measure, then turn
off
| all lights, and point at a window in the daylight, and you will hear the
| difference.  That is the most advanced light probe I have seen.
|
| All the best
|
| Steve

| Hi all -
|
| Got my Colorino colour identifyer today, and my first impressions are
that
| it scores well over the Cobolt equivalent. It is also much smaller, and
much
| better built, and the light probe is much more useful too as it actually
| pinpoints the direction of the light source.
|
| I haven't had any sighted clarification yet, but where I am able to say
with
| some certainty, it is more accurate in colour detection than the Cobolt;
it
| is also a bit more expensive at £73.48 [including p&p]
|
| What I am wondering is how to recalerbrate it and to change the volume,
| there doesn't seem a way to do this? There also doesn't appear to be an
| off-on switch.
|
| The Colorino comes in a rather odd zip-book type pouch.
|
| Anyway, all in all, a good buy I think -
|
| Andy
