After their first Kickstarter campaign proved a success, the young designers at orangered life have taken their 30° Ruler (cleverly taglined “One Ruler to Rule Them All”) and brought it to a whole new level:

The 30° Ruler 2.0 is still very much like its predecessor. Instead of a flat ruler, this one is angled at a 30° slope to make it easier to use. You can see the measurements from a glance without having to leaning over (improving your already questionable posture). You can easily grab it without having to drag it towards the edge of the table. Finally, the angled nature of the ruler makes it easier to hold and prevent it from slipping when you’re using it as a guide.

Apart from its signature sloped design, the 2.0 version also has a couple of new features.

30° Ruler 2.0

For starters, the new ruler starts at zero; meaning you can start measuring from the very edge of the ruler instead of having to make adjustments for the useless blank space before the laser engraved measurements.

The ruler itself is made from Aerospace grade aluminum while the measurements are laser targeted. In addition to making it more durable, the materials used also make the 30° Ruler 2.0 more lightweight and scratch-resistant.

While not all rulers don’t have it (which they definitely should), the 30° Ruler 2.0 also has two different measurements etched on both sides. The ruler also comes in sizes of 6, 8, and 12 inches, so you can choose the right sized ruler depending on what you’re measuring.

Folks must really love their rulers, because the 30° Ruler 2.0 already has almost 4 times its initial $2,466 Kickstarter goal (it currently has a funding of $8,035). You can read more about this sloped measuring tool and preorder your own over on the 30° Ruler 2.0 Kickstarter page.
