A dressmaker/tailor can only be as good as the measurements they take and it’s very easy to make mistakes, particularly when you have to add different measurements together. The “pen ruler” can solve this problem: Instead of using a measuring tape, you simply “draw” the person whose measurements you need with this pen – and you can even draw around them. The pen takes the individual measurements and adds all the necessary data together directly to give you the measurements you need more quickly and with much greater accuracy. Despite the innovative technology it uses, the pen still looks and feels like a traditional writing utensil.
