That actually looks really useful, I wonder how much it is in SA, oh. Nevermind I'll just click on the link to the SA retailer... Oh

No, this is the world's smartest tape measure.

Assuming, of course, that you exclude these.
Neither of those can remotely be described as a tape measure, even though they are incredible tools.
The Bagel is much closer to being described as a tape measue, even though it uses a string instead of tape.

My disto has almost replaced my tape.

And only one aspect of this can be described as a [vastly hamstrung] tape measure. The other two features are an uncalibrated, inaccurate, unreliable ultrasonic rangefinder, with a hundredth of the range and accuracy of a good Leica, and an uncalibrated, inaccurate, unreliable measuring wheel.

Maybe I'm just a metrology snob, but I wouldn't trust anything like this toy.
