You know how sometimes you get your hands on a new gadget and you have so much fun playing with it that you just keep going even though it has long since outlasted its utility? Well that’s me and the Bosch Compact Blaze Laser Distance Measure right now. This awesome tool is basically the tape measure of the future. Instead of having to roll out a tape measure and try to wrangle it as it flops around, it uses lasers to measure the distance to any object. It’s only $40 and it’s totally worth it.
Here’s more info from the product page:
