Have you ever drilled into your wall and created a small disaster? Have you seen sparks fly or have you caused a small flood when all you wanted to do was hang up a new painting? Well now you can prevent these tiny catastrophes with Walabot.
Walabot looks like it’s working with magic. But it’s a small device (the size of your phone) and an app that allows you to actually see into your walls so you will never drill into the wrong place again. It can see through concrete, dry wall and wood up to a 10 cm or 4 in depth. It can show you any plastic or metal pipes as well as studs and wires and even their orientation. In bad cases, that we hope you don’t find yourself in, it can even show you moving rodents or large irregularities like termite nests. The app is constantly being updated where now there is even a differentiation between wooden or metal studs.
With Walabot you can take snapshots of the wall which is very helpful when you are offline and then able map out whole walls for larger projects. There is also map mode which provides a visual overview over large parts of your wall on site. This device is perfect for anyone making small (or large) upgrades to your home, engineers, plumbers, electricians, construction workers, interior designers and the list goes on.
The Walabot only works with Android and on top of that only the majority of Androids that have been around for the last two years. It needs to be running 5.0 Lollipop, 6.0 Marshmallow & 7 Nougat and 8 Oreo with a USB on The Go (OTG) outlet. If your phone doesn’t not have this outlet it will not work. There are several brands of phone that Walabot is not compatible with so be sure to check the list before purchasing.
The Walabot costs $79.99 USD.
