When new gadgets are announced, it's often weeks if not months before you can see them in person to gauge their size. Sizeasy is a slick and simple piece of Webware that lets you plug in the dimensions of any product and compare it to real-world objects.

What really makes it fun is selecting from a drop-down list of real products to measure your object against, such as a door, a mattress, a box of matches, or a wine bottle. You can include up to five objects for your comparison.

When you're done, you'll receive a link to share your comparison with others. Sizeasy also provides you with a graphic of your comparison, which you can save on your hard drive or post to your blog or Web site.

Sizeasy is a simple and enjoyable tool to use. It's easy on the eyes and very intuitive. Aside from measuring gadgets, there are real-world applications for comparing the size of objects you already own, or to see exactly how much that new TV you want to buy will dwarf your old one.
