In this article, I would like to introduce a genius copper artist Wu who gift for camouflage a step farther. It started with the chameleon tap measure. At the first glance, it doesn’t reminds me anything about the humble measuring tape. But the fancy looking chameleon is actually a tool and its extraordinarily long tongue can extend to six feet.

After paying a visit to Wu’s Etsy shop, I found several similar designs that Wu called them “creative tools“. Although they look more like decorations or jewelries for me, they do have some practical usage, such like open your beer or clean your ear.
