Artificial intelligence is capable of many things, and now it looks like AI could potentially given screenwriters a run for their money.

Our smartphones are becoming increasingly capable of taking photos and videos, but sometimes it could always use a little help with some accessories that will take it to the next level.

We’re sure at some point in time we all have used a tape measure, whether it be to measure boxes we want to transport, or the size of a couch to know whether or not it will fit in our living rooms, or even if we’ve just played around with it just to see the tape recoil and spring back into its container.
