Zero Has Some Value

Zero has an enormous amount of value when you are calculating and even on your ruler. The specialized Zero Point Ruler places “0” plum in the center of the stick so that it’s easy to measure out or draw lines. Traditionally rulers or scales start off with “0” flushed to the left; this ruler has it placed in the center as a matter of convenience. Wonder if it will make any difference to your measuring skills! BTW, there is a solar panel running along one length of the scale, and no specific reason mentioned. Anyone willing to venture a guess?

    I wanne guess! I think the numbers are a LCD screen, and the 0 position can changed by pointing at it! and that would also explain the solar panel.

    very simple and good idea.

  • Armin says:

    Yup, a simple and elegant solution! Far better than extending the ruler on the other end.

    it would be ridiculously expensive for what it is. this a designer designing for designers.

    I have several rulers for mechanical drawing. All start and end their scales well away from the end edge. If you have to use a ruler that is not made this way, you start from the “1” mark which is at least an inch away from the offending edge.

    This ruler seems to solve a non-problem.

    this would be great for measuring equally from a center line, such as marking points for drawer pulls. it needs to show the millimeter marks too.

    No electronics (simplicity) and still 0 ist not at the end

  • James says:

    solar panel is to power the ruler, so you can move the zero point. It’s not always in the middle – it’s wherever you want it.

    It does solve a non-problem for people that can add.

  • You can try several things to help speed up the process and maybe even lighten the tan up a little bit.
    It is important to do any waxing at least twenty
    four hours or so in advance of applying any tan (fortunately, you will likely know about any big days
    or nights in advance so you will be able to
    do so) as not only will waxing afterwards remove the tan you have applied, waxing
    can also lead to dark dots on the skin which can collect the tan in the follicles:
    needless to say. That way, you will never be out of the color
    you like if they happen to run out of it at the local drugstore or
    beauty center.
