Interesting: Analogue Wood and Brass Tools Transformed into Digital Measuring Devices

This set of measuring instruments designed by Unfold in collaboration with Kirschner 3D and Penny Webb translates measurements into CAD models in real time, allowing for the customisation of 3D printed objects.

Digital software like photoshop uses familiar objects like a paint brush or paint bucket as a metaphor for representing digital tools. These analogue objects inject the digital functions of these tools back into the physical realm.
