    It is always interesting to me when I see Ryobi come out with something “neat” or interesting in terms of innovation ahead of others. Granted, the quality is not always up to par, but it surprises me to see them come out ahead of others with innovative stuff more often than not.

    This new phone works system looks interesting, though not sure how it will hold up to lots of use.

    I never thought I would ever see the word Ryobi and innovation in the same sentence 🙂

    No kidding, it looks like the first step in connecting the work place to the phone. I believe this is the first in a long sting of bluetooth and connected devices.

    lol well Ryobi’s cordless nailers were in the back of my mind as something innovative

    Interesting to be sure. This is v1 look for others to jump in and things to improve. This could be the start of specialized smart phones.

    This certainly won’t be the last of these sorts of smart phone accessories – seems like it could have potential if it is done well.

    Interesting step by Ryobi. We will have to see what other companies start offering this. Definitely creative uses of technology interacting with the cell phone.

    It does sound strange. You would think TTI would push something like this in the Milwaukee name.

    The infrared thermometer is the only one Ryobi’s new gadgets that interests me.

    That and the inspection scope….. I cant tell you how many times I’ve shoved my cell phone into a wall cavity or another dark space to see what’s going on.

    Awesome find John. I might get one of those. The Stud Finder: $20 seems like a great deal.

    Innovation from ryobi always surprises me what they come out with .

    Always willing to learn .

    #199881

    It all depends if the tools actually work decently. I wouldn’t mind any of those items for the prices they are shown at assuming they actually work decently well… but I am doubtful that the lasers will be very helpful, although it would be neat if they work well

    I could see a miter saw having angle and blade speed sensors that would stream to your phone so you have almost a dashboard for your cuts. Not 100% necessary but a cool feature none the less.

    Great concepts, I just don’t think Ryobi mas the quality to pull it off. When I get an I phone, I will seriously consider thr flit infared attachment.
