Leica DISTO E7100i Laser Measuring Tape
I've always wanted a laser measuring tape for the house, but I didn't realize just how useful they could be.
Recently I picked up the Leica DISTO E7100i
I've used it for a number of projects:
Measuring the dimensions of my son and daughter's room so we could make an at scale drawing to layout furniture
Measuring window dimensions for some Lutron Serena automated shades
It's crazy accurate - much better than me with a measuring tape.
This is a super handy gadget to keep in your house.
