Gadget of the Week - eTape16 Digital Tape Measure

eTape Digital Tape Measure

Tape measures are incredibly useful tools - but they can also be clunky and cumbersome. Well, now they’re getting more than just a facelift, thanks to the 
eTape16 Digital Tape Measure. This new gadget aims to finally bring a ubiquitous tool into the 21st century.

As the eTape’s website explains:

“The tape measure has remained virtually unchanged for over 100 years, until now. The eTape16 Digital Tape Measure revolutionizes not only the tape measure but also expands its utility as never before envisioned.”

Why go digital? Well, how about the fact that it’ss simpler, reliable, and accurate? The eTape is easy to use; all functions are designed around the device’s side, which features a button wheel. The reliability comes from the polycarbonate plastic that makes up the device’s sturdy shell.

Even better? The eTape may even allow you to save on time and money. The device takes the guessing out of measuring, guaranteeing the accuracy of results. Plus, the device can help reduce measuring errors - which could save you plenty on time, labor, and supplies.

Ready to see how this device measures up? You can purchase your own eTape16 on Amazon and other sites for $34.99. For an item built to last you through many home renovations, the price tag is worth it.
