As far as inventions go, the ruler is a pretty simple one. But now Shay Shafranek is updating the ruler for modern life. While the finished design of Shafranek’s electronic ruler is nothing special (can’t really do anything with the appearance of a ruler), the electronic part is definitely special.

The electronic ruler shows precise measurements of your lines through numbers on the front of the ruler. Take a look at the modern ruler above and the quick movie that shows off the rulers new abilities.
