You wouldn’t think a tape measure could be improved upon because it’s a relatively simple device, but inventor Stephen Crane found a scenario where the old school tape measure wasn’t cutting it. He worked at a foreign shipyard and had to convert measurement units quickly which was too much math for one day.
That’s where the eTape16 comes in to play. You can measure anything up to 16 feet and the digital readout will show you exactly how long something is which you can convert to inches, centimeters, fractions or decimals with the push of a button. It also has large numbers on the screen so people with poor eyesight don’t have to squint to see the length.
The eTape16 also saves your measurements so if you need to measure multiple items and don’t want to scribble them down, this will save each one so you can finish the job and then go back to write down all the dimensions. It really is a simple idea executed well and that’s why we like this digital tape measure.
