Ryobi Laser level

For those who like to make no mistake when aligning skirting boards or bathroom tiles, the Ryobi Phone Works Laser Level is a great investment to add to your DIY tool collection. Unlike the spirit level that is more commonly used, the laser level enables for a permanent line to work with. The spirit level also requires more hands if working with multiple materials, making the laser level much less fiddly.

The Ryobi Laser is specially designed for turning your smartphone into a cross hair laser level and comes with a phone mount clip for a steady and precise line. Compatible for both Android and iOS devices, what better DIY gadget could you ask for?

After completing all the hard work of your DIY project, the last thing you want to do is have to tidy up the bits and pieces left on the floor. Luckily there are now some smart vacuum cleaners on the market that will do the more tedious jobs for you, just like the iRobot Vacuum Cleaner. The clever robotic technology allows for a high-efficiency cleaning system and maps the environment around it so it doesn’t lose track of where it is or where it has been. The best feature, though, is the automatic suction power increase for where it is needed most.
