With all the new phones and tablets, we might not use pen and paper that often anymore. But for many of us, a notepad, a good pen and a solid straight edge are always the way for designing, notes taking and analog illustrations. If you are sticking to the old fashion way to get things done, look no further, here is the tool for you.

Born on Kickstarter and named a 2015 Red Dot Award honorable mention for excellence in product design, the Rule/One pen-ruler from Human Mechanic Method combines compact size, durable build, and seamless functionality.


Ballpoint, Stylus & More

Made from milled aluminum, this one-of-a-kind tool has three interchangeable heads for use as a ballpoint pen, a stylus for your tablet, and a lanyard when you’re on the go. The ruled siding allows you to measure as you go, and the droplet-shaped body fits snugly between the pages to double as a bookmark.
