Down the ages, people have been utilizing various stationeries to draw precise figures by own hands. On the other hand, as computers developed, CAD software has enabled us to draw precise figures and duplicate them easily on displays.
COMP*PASS is a drawing tool that can draw various figures on physical papers. Users can draw digital controlled figures only by twisting just like a daily compass. Also, by referring ordinary compass’s function of “measuring distances,” users can copy & paste figures physically. COMP*PASS releases digital-drawing-aids from displays to physical environment and integrated into a daily tool seamlessly.
