'Iris' that can draw a circle instead of a compass with the aperture mechanism of the camera
When you try to draw a circle on paper using a common compass, you are not very smart because you need to pierce the paper with a pointed needle. ' Iris ' is a revolutionary tool that can draw an accurate circle simply by tracing with a pencil created with the same mechanism as the ' iris stop ' mechanism used for the camera lens. It looks simple and stylish, and it is a masterpiece that makes you want to decorate your desk as an interior.

This is Iris.
This is the place I took Iris.
Iris has a thin ring with a structure of 20 thin plates (diaphragm blades), and sliding the ring counterclockwise with a finger causes the diaphragm blades to stick out, narrowing the central hole ...
Conversely, if you slide clockwise, the hole will expand.
After the hole is opened to any size, place it on paper ...
You can draw a circle by tracing the edge of the hole with a pencil.
The ring has a scale of up to 7 cm.
Thanks to that, it is not only possible to draw a circle from 2 to 70 mm in diameter correctly.
It is also possible to measure the diameter of the circle that has already been drawn.
The ring is made of brass.
The diaphragm blade is made of spring steel and is resistant to graphite and ink, so it can use not only pencils but also mechanical pencils and fountain pens.
Iris comes with a set that also serves as a stand. When the semicircular part of this base is fitted inside the ring of Iris, the tip part just points to the central part of the hole of Iris, so it is not easy to draw a circle around a certain point. not.
