This is a really cool little tool, huh? If you were wondering how such a simple tool as a tape measure could be re-designed and re-engineered for the 21st century then take a good look at this offering from eTape.
The thing is though this design does not represent innovation for innovations sake. No, eTape have looked at the traditional style of tape measure, and wondered what improvements on form and function a digital screen could bring to the table. The answer is quite a lot actually.
For one thing the digital screen allows for incredibly accurate measurements. Is this the most accurate tape measure on the market? We would not be surprised in the least if that was the case. You also though can still use the measuring blade in the traditional way, as it is clearly marked out with Imperial measurement lines.
Another cool thing about the screen is that you can switch back and forth between Metric and Imperial measurements. You can also re-zero measurements at any time without having to retract the measuring blade. Simply press the zero button on the case and you can measure again. That, to us at least, is really cool.
The tool itself is also nice and rugged and weather resistant. It’s probably not as tough as a simpler tape measure design though, so do treat it a little more gently. It is also right at the premium end of the price tag, and is the most expensive tape measure on the list today.
It’s also really cool though!
