EDC, Stationery, the MAGCON is all in one


It’s hard to keep track of all the features the Magcon has and all the problems the Magcon solves, but I’ll try my level best to stay on top of things in this article. This is the Magcon. It’s an artist’s, engineer’s, designer’s, architect’s, student’s, and general human’s best friend. The Magcon isn’t just a stationery tool, it’s a real tool too. It packs a pen-stand, rounder/compass, wrench, scale, bottle opener, and drawing guide all in one.

There are two very clear ways of looking at the Magcon. It serves the purpose of a drawing tool, and it also works as an EDC tool. The Magcon comprises two utility modules, a straight ruler with linear perforations, and a second abstract ruler with a curved profile, drawing guides, a set of wrenches, and a bottle opener. These modules can be used independently as you would a scale or a french curve ruler, but things get more interesting when you introduce Magcon’s Compass base to the mix.

The Compass is a solid piece of machined stainless steel that works not just as a compass-guide, but also as a pen-stand. It has a hole at its base that you can use to place the Compass wherever you need, and magnetically allows the ruler units to snap to it. Once magnetically attached, the ruler units swing freely in 360° around the base, allowing you to create circles and measure arcs nearly perfectly, while achieving this feat without piercing the paper. Markings on the Compass base even let you measure degrees as you draw circular lines, giving you control and intuition, bundled together in tools that don’t change the way you make circles or lines, but just innovatively improve the process and cut the clutter, thanks to its minimal design.

There’s a lot the Magcon can do. It can let you make perfect lines, arcs, circles, measure drawings, make mandala patterns, and even let you rest your pen/pencil in it when you’re taking a break. In fact, it’ll do you another solid and let you open a nice bottle of soda while you’re on that break!
