iRuler – er…it’s a ruler. Online.


How weird is it that after all these years we can still be surprised? Pink giraffes on roller skates do it, as does a Romanian belly dancer singing Wagner. But apart from that kind of stuff we thought we were pretty fire proof.

However we have to confess that iRuler has got us stumped. What’s it for? Are we expected to pick up the monitor and hold it against the thing we’re measuring? Or hold the thing up to the screen? Or perhaps it’s just a rough guess type thing?


It’s definitely stranger than Smart Ruler on your smartphone. But hey, what do we know?

    The ruler does not match actual centimetres or inches.
