constrained ball

while its true that the name is unfortunate, this innovation is certainly very clever. the "constrained ball" is a drawing aid created by korean designer giha woo. you attach it to a pen and are then able to draw straight lines across a whole page without accidentally crossing out the neighboring couple lines, inevitably, by accident!

the downside is that you have to be using a flat surface for the constrained ball to produce a strait line, and i find i get a lot of paper reading accomplished on the bus these days, or leaning back in my chair with my feet up.

Interesting concept but yes I can see the downside. Dy paper reading is always while I'm walking very briskly down a street, can't really stop and roll so to speak :)

I knew there was interesting science behind McDonald's' food not spoiling!

Oh yeah, straight lines are neat too.
