Today I'm launching my first project:

The purpose of is to make units of measurement understandable.

It takes a quantity with a scientific unit and turns it into several quantities with sensible units, like elephants, buses and Great Walls of China.

It is based on the principle that users should be allowed to be lazy. This means:

  • having a single, large, friendly input box and no buttons, tickboxes or (heaven forbid!) drop-down lists.
  • giving answers while the user is typing, without loading new files.
  • not expecting the user to say what output units they want, which spoils the fun anyway.
All feedback is welcome.
