This nifty little tool for tradies or weekend home repair warriors is not only a tape measure, but also a voice recorder. When you don’t have a pen and paper handy you can record your measurements into the tape measure and play them back when you need them.

The device’s in-built recorder is designed for short recordings and can only hold up to 20 seconds of voice, but it’s enough for the important information you need. It also has an LED light in the front to help out with making exact measurements. The recorder works using four LR44 batteries, which are included in the price.
