eTape Measuring Tape Features iPod Design, LED ScreenS

The old-fashioned tape measure is getting a 21st century upgrade with, what else, an iPod inspired design—but the LED screen is the feature worth getting excited about.

Using the iPod-esque controls and the screen, the user can display and record measurements, adjust case lengths and convert measurements between standard and metric. Definitely a smart design, but when DIYers might be able to get their hands on it is unknown. [Gearlog via Newlaunches via Coolest Gadgets]
