It is common for stationery to be borrowed in classrooms or offices. As observed, a ruler is a tool that is often exchanged but hardly shareable between 2 or more people. Thus, how can multiple individuals benefit from a single tool simultaneously while not compromising its basic functionality – to measure? Well, it is possible if the tool can be deconstructed.
By physically separating the archetype into laminated paper strips, which are held together by re-adherable glue, this arrangement affords ease of sharing as ruler sheets can be peeled off when desired.
The sheets can then be freely repositioned for different measurement purposes across mediums. The choice of material allows quick jotting to capture information on the fly. S-Ruler thus offers a fresh new perspective on the act of measuring and creates a hopeful dialogue for ritualistic sharing.
