This innovative little rule can measure infinitely thanks to its clever design

We do not stop progress, even with the simplest objects of everyday life! Today, we invite you to discover a wonderful invention imagined by the designer Kalyani Tupkary. The latter has in fact developed the "Flip Scale", a surprising rule specially designed to be able to do measurements to infinity.

The principle is very simple: Flip Scale is a rule composed of three parts with two rotating arms and a linear scale above. The tilting arms will allow you to maintain and rotate the scale when you reach the end of the measure. So, the Flip Scale allows you to go much further than a tape measure for example.

Only downside: like any rule, she can only measure in a straight line. The Flip Scale was molded entirely in polycarbonate, which allows it to be particularly resistant to scratches. A nice initiative with classic rules that proves, once again, that innovation can revolutionize the use of any everyday object.

We let you discover the wonderful Flip Scale in images, in pictures (and in GIF) just below and of course we invite you to visit Behance profile of Kalyani Tupkary to learn more about the artist.
