Lebesgue measure on an uncountable product of intervals

Hi all,

I'm reading Yuri Manin's /A Course in Mathematical Logic for
Mathematicians/, and in a chapter on the continuum hypothesis he writes

Let I be a set of cardinality > omega_1. We set

Omega = [0, 1]^I, with Lebesgue measure [...]

Here omega_1 is the first uncountable ordinal. My question is, how does
one define the Lebesgue measure on [0, 1]^I when I is infinite (and, in
particular, uncountable)?
