Hot or Not? A Digital Ruler

We sorta cringed when the iPhone store started filling up with "digital levels," but this one.. we're not too sure. Combining the values of a traditional ruler with the advantages of a digital interface may sound good on paper, but is this concept bound to take home the gold in digital simplicity or is it another flop for the new world yuppies? So, we ask:

Honestly, it'd drive me nuts having to replace yet another battery on one of my digital gadgets. I think I'd so rather stick with your run the mill ruler we've been using for ages, but maybe it's just this obsession with vintage gadgets lately has talkin'. Quite frankly, looking at the digital ruler just makes me think of this "Technologic Overkill" video promo shot for the iPhone a few days back.
