Crayola is More Than Crayons!

I've seen these Crayola commercials for some very cool school tools, but I somehow missed this one.

Check out the Crayola Total Tools Audio Ruler.

Image of Crayola Audio Ruler This talking ruler measures in quarter-inch increments up to a foot, and does so by measuring a thin line of disappearing ink.

OK, really. How cool is a tool that measures out loud and uses disappearing ink?! And how much is this little gem going to set me back, you might ask? Well, according to the, it runs a cool $7.99.

Have any of you used this with a student yet? How about a student with a learning or physical disability? Seems like you would be able to use more of a gross motion to use it. What do you think? And have you seen any other cool new school tools? (A little Wednesday afternoon assonance for you all :)
