Have you ever had a device that you wanted to make just a

little bit more sonic little bit more sonic

? Have you ever been up late, measuring rooms and thought: “Could I approach this task with an iPhone? http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22Who+looks+at+a+screwdriver+and+thinks%2C+%27Ooh%2C+this+could+be+a+little+more+sonic%27%3F%22&aq=f&oq=&aqi=” Fortunately for you, the good people at http://labs.laan.com/ have already thought of this. They’ve anticipated this eventuality and are now shipping the iPhone Sonar Ruler [http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=324621243&mt=8] for just a buck on the iTunes Store.

Sure, you could go out to Office Depot and spend twenty bucks getting a far more reliable, dedicated unit but isn’t it more fun to help support iPhone devs while really pushing the device beyond its design intent?
