You gotta just love when something really old gets revamped with a modern twist. The Electronic Ruler is most certainly on the bulky side, but for those who are short on sight this might just be a god send.
Little to no detail has been provided about the conceptual project, but based on the pics I’m gonna say it is actually functioning. Placing the pencil on the sensor will provide a digital readout of that point’s length and to give it that authentic ruler feel they’ve added a transparent wood facade.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
