Hammer and an iPhone? Stanley makes it so...

Published:  07 June, 2012

UK: A hammer and iPhone don’t normally go well together, but the people at Stanley have just launched a free and fun new app.

The app invites users to test the new Stanley hammer against a top of the range competitor model. To do this, you simply shake the iPhone in a forward and backward hammering motion (fast) as many times as possible in 20 seconds, as the hammer hitting a nail is visualised on screen.

Once the Stanley and the competitor hammers have both been tested, the number of strikes achieved in 20 seconds for each product can be compared, demonstrating the superior performance of the FatMax.
