The large compasses traditionally used for blackboards in classrooms have suffered from being overly bulky. This makes them difficult to carry around and teachers have the problem keeping the centre of a circle in a fixed spot while drawing circles with these oversized compasses.

In light of this, we have addressed the problem of portability in the design of this product. Furthermore, the product will come with a digital display of readings for radii and angles so that teachers are able to draw circles and arcs more precisely with greater ease in classrooms.
