Finger Ruler concept
Finger & Ruler awesome new way to measure things.
Your index finger has many purposes; just add plus one to it! Thanks to the Finger & Ruler concept, you can measure the dimensions of an object by simply rolling the ruler over it. The wheel concept makes it easy to measure using just one hand equipped with a wheel, this new type of ruler allows you to measure the dimensions of the materials over which the wheel is rolled.
For most people, using a typical tape measure is normally not a problem. However, you always need two hands to manage. If one hand is injured or unusable, the Finger & Ruler makes it possible for people to measure the length or width of an object with just one hand. Simple and functional, we really think this is a great concept!
With a quick swipe, the ring immediately displays the length of an object. The Finger & Ruler fits snugly around your finger so that you don’t have to fumble around with a large tape measure.
Designer Shim Ha Eun created the high-tech ruler using simple concepts. A wheel rolls along the surface that you swipe on in order to feed dimension data to the ring. That information is then displayed on a crisp display at the top of the device. The Finger & Ruler is a 2013 iF Design Award concept design winner.
