eMeasure, Inc. created the digital tape measure, eTape16. Combining a traditional tape measure with digital features, such as unit conversion and centerline/midpoint calculation, eTape16 eliminates the need for manual calculation and results in more accurate measurement capture.
With the addition of the eTape16 Bluetooth, eMeasure looked to Dogfish Software to create a mobile application that would talk to their device. This iOS application uses the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) feature to communicate with the tape measure to record and organize measurements into an Excel-style worksheet. Users can also label and store individual worksheets for each project, allowing for easy management of a entire collection of household or worksite projects.
