If you are assuming that this is a sort of a wooden ruler we used in all our geometry classes, for drawing the accurate decimalized line segments….then you are absolutely right! Well then what’s with the shining digital display? With almost every other thing getting digital why should the plain and simple ruler be left behind?
It’s a concept in making with no further details provided, but the functioning can be pretty well understood. As you drag your marker or pencil along the ruler’s edge the display automatically shows the numbers concerned without having the user to look very closely for the markings as in the ordinary ones. With this device one does not have to worry about a poor vision for making minute measurements. The electronic ruler is an amazing idea and with the wooden look it would be a device that we will look forward to.
