The struggle that people face in attempting to pick up a straight edge is not necessarily high on the list of tribulations above solving world hunger. Nevertheless, this slight inconvenience is better corrected than not, and it's delightful to see that the ArchRuler by Tomoya Yoshida puts an end to inefficient office supplies.

The colorful measuring tools have been manufactured of curved strips of translucent plastic so that when they rest on your desktop their middles are raised from the table. This makes it much easier for your slippery fingers to pick them up, no longer requiring you to slide the objects to the edge of your work surface first. When you wish to observe the length of something, simply push down on the ArchRuler by Tomoya Yoshida with a single finger to flatten it.
