I recently saw a couple of articles on Hackaday regarding the modification of cheap digital callipers. It turns out that as well as being able to interface these callipers to a microcontroller such as an Arduino, there are some hidden functions that are simple to unlock. I was curious because I happen to own a very similar set of callipers already. Well I could not see a perfectly good tool go unmodified for long.
Not only that, as impressed as I was by the hacks that have been done already on digital callipers, the execution has been pretty ghetto looking. I had an idea that would produce a more stock looking finish that I think is more durable.
