Typically, when one wishes to know the dimensions of a particular object or area, he will intend to record his findings. The Length Stamp eliminates the necessity of a paper and pencil, providing the user with a built-in ink stamp that can display and imprint the exact value quantified.

Bae Jaeman, Kwak Yongseok, Jeon Kyungsoo and Ro Heehun collaborated on this handy toolbox item, winning them a 2013 Red Dot Design Award. While it is an analog mechanism, it certainly improves the current disjointed method of measuring.

To use the Length Stamp, pull out the tape measure and align it with the object in question. Stop the strip when it matches the extent of the object, and the numbered wheels can roll to show the precise distance in millimeters. Impress this onto your hand, onto the item directly, or onto a recording sheet.
