Formerly the bastion of builders, landscapers and real estate agents, now laser measuring fun comes to the (well-heeled) masses with the Leica Disto A5. In a form factor that looks more like a cellphone than a measuring device, the A5 lets you point its laser beam at any object and its exact distance is read back to you. With its range of a few inches up to 600 feet, you can use it indoors or out, and its optical viewfinder helps you zero in on those faraway objects. Available now for $450.
