Magic Dot / Compass

Magic Dot
Magic Dot

Compass is one of the common drawing tools in our learning and working life. But the needle for locating the centre is somewhat dangerous, which may stab user’s finger. The Magic Dot solves this problem by an embedded structure on the leg with needle. When the two legs are closed, the red button on the side of the leg is pressed. And then the needle is stretched back to ensure safety. When the legs are separated, the red button is popped, and the needle is extended for use. This simple process synchronizes the using state of the compass with that of the needle, which is safe, convenient and practical.
