HEY, STUD

Forbes - - VERTICALS -

brought home that cov­eted basquiat but want to be sure it doesn’t go crash­ing to the floor thanks to your all-thumbs home-project tom­fool­ery? wal­abot Diy ($199; wal­abot.com/ diy), a new an­droiden­abled pipe, stud and elec­tri­cal-wire de­tec­tor, is here to help. your smart­phone screen is the dig­i­tal can­vas on which it’ll gen­er­ate 3-d ren­der­ings of your wall in­te­ri­ors. plug the slim de­vice into your phone to har­ness its ra­dio-fre­quency imag­ing sen­sor, which can “see” through ce­ment and dry­wall and mea­sure depth up to 4 inches. (an iphone ver­sion is on the way.) the Wal­abot is so sen­si­tive it can de­tect plas­tic pipes, leaks, ter­mites and even the move­ment of ro­dents. Which is handy, as sotheby’s re­turn pol­icy prob­a­bly doesn’t cover mouse bites.
