The Ruler That Moves

The Ruler That Moves

The ‘Smart rolling-ruler’ is a compact ruler and can draw a limitless line thanks to the flexible display that rotates 360 degrees and moves forwards like the caterpillar tracks. As it moves intuitively, the display shows the changing gradations and measurements.

Under Pressure

Under Pressure

The clever thing about the PASCA Tire Gauge is that it’s handy enough to loop into your car key ring. The gauge is easy to use and the LCD displays the tire pressure quite precisely. As the designer explains, “taking advantage of the fact that the driver will at least have the car key on hand all the time, we think we should just use the driver’s keys as the handle, and use a simple push action to insert the gauge to your tire valve.”

The foam is fully resistant to UV, salt and normal levels of acid and bases.
