'[OT] Looking for a shape/curve measuring/copying t'

I've been searching for a tool that measures or copies shapes, with a  
densely-packed row of sliding pins (somewhat like a comb), and a  
locking mechanism.  Not sure what they're officially called, but  
google eventually got me this (  
http://www.craftsmanspace.com/free-projects/shape-copying-and-controlling-tool.html ), though it's a  
project.

I'm looking for one that I can purchase.  I've also seen them used in  
auto repair shops to ensure a body panel on one side matches the other  
side, for example.  Any leads?

Cheers,
-Neil.

Called profile copying gauge, look here:

They are common in the woodworking area, though they have application
elsewhere.

Wow, that was quick, thanks!  Apparently I could not come up with the  
important words "profiling" or "contouring".

Cheers,
