Upgraded Measuring Tape Features Pencil Trapping Gap for Straight Lines

Advertising

We know you architects and designers out there are constantly looking for new ways to simplify your work. Seen on Yanko Design, the Hole Measuring Tape from designer Sunghoon Jung is a 2012 iF Design Talents Award entry and a practical instrument, soon to be implemented. The product allows its user to draw straight lines easier and with precision, while in the same time assessing their length. Unlike most rulers or common measuring tapes, this idea comes with a functional gap, which the user can use to “trap” a pencil and sketch more accurately. The design has more than one measuring systems, which is definitely a useful feature. You should know the item is still in the concept phase, but it will probably be on the market soon. How would you comment on this creative measuring tape upgrade? Is it a must-have instrument in your work?

    That’s such a simple and clever redesign of the measuring tape. It would be nice item to give to creative and crafty people. Then again, crafty people might just make this themselves.
