Piko updates and reinvents the design of traditional measuring tools to make Do-It-Yourself (DIY) activities easier. Users often hesitate on actions like drilling into walls or cutting with electric saws for fear of inaccuracy. Piko solves this problem as a precise laser measuring and levelling tool. It is intuitive to use and minimises misalignment when making markings. Piko creates guide lines with laser beams so accurate markings can be made. For perfect alignment, simply press the red button to adhere Piko to the wall. While the top half of the instrument acts as the origin marking, the user detaches the bottom half of the instrument and drags it along the horizontal or vertical laser guide to make the next marking. This also frees up one hand to hold a pencil. The red button is hollow in the middle to allow markings to be made without having to move the instrument.
