Finger&Ruler / Ruler


iF concept design award 2013

iF concept design award 2013

Finger&Ruler is a rolling ruler. In order to use it, you have to put the ruler on your finger. Equipped with a wheel, this new type of ruler allows you to measure the dimensions of the materials over which the wheel is rolled. For most people, using a typical tape measure is normally not a problem. However, you always need two hands to manage. If one hand is injured or unusable, the Finger&Ruler makes it possible for people to measure the length or width of an object with just one hand.

This is our first international design competition and we are honored and pleased to win this award. Above all, we want to thank everyone who advised  and encouraged us. This project was really intersting but was really tough job for us. Furthermore, We have learned that the power we can change the world come from trying to think differently that used to be usual.
