No-Tape Measurer

A tape measure might reach a mere 25 feet. The Leica Disto A6 goes up to 650 feet—its laser beam is accurate to within 1/16 inch—and calculates square footage, height, and volume. When you're done, the Bluetooth-enabled device lets you beam those numbers right to your laptop. About $650; Leica Geosystems
