“It’s Zero Wherever You Like”, yes, it’s a new concept of ruler for designer who love to draw measured straight lines. Designer Chul Sung Ahn, Chang Dae Jeon, Da Hye Lee and Hee Chul Kwak and come out with a special ruler called “0 Point Ruler” which will always show you the ‘0’ mark whenever you touch the ruler with pencil or pen. It’s basically a pressure-sensitive ruler edge with digital marking on the body of the ruler, much like the electronic ruler that we have seen in the yesteryear.
Obviously, this type of device would be a battery-powered or it won’t show you anything at all. Luckily, you don’t have to replace the battery as the designers have thought a better alternative. See that hollow red gear-like design on the ruler? Just put your finger into the hollow space, and swing it around to recharge the battery. Kirrrrrr!
It’s simple, but effective. No wonder why they could won the iF Design Talents of 2012! I can’t wait to get a hold of such ruler, even I’m not a pro designer, this type of ruler is a must-have!
