Well, I must admit that I am one of those persons who are very detail focused, especially when it is about destroying things. I like to erase stuff... surgically erasing stuff. But we have some real issues with white boards. The standard eraser nukes too much on an area.
Furthermore, I have a crazy, productivity-minded, management. Time is money, blablabla. I am French... we see things differently, especially working time, don't push me on this subject or I'll strike! Reaching the eraser while you already have a pen in the hand is pure waste of time and energy. This is a real occupational healthcare risk. This is bad and each time you do that a kitty dies somewhere in the world under a german car wheel. Let's fix that and keep german cars clean of moronic kitties.
What is the mission?
- Erasing and faking figures of KPIs on your neighbor's dashboards.
- I want to make it low cost.
- I want it sharp, thin, elegant.
- I want to see it around all white boards.
What do you need?
- A white board pen.
- A white board eraser tissue.
- A rubber band or whatever is available around to fasten something around a cylinder (tape...).
Total cost of the project:
- Well... it is office supply-based. As all office supply, this has to be stolen. So, steal the stuff on the desk of your line manager.
2 - Use something round as a guide and draw a circle of about 5-7cm in diameter next to one of the corner.
3 - Cut out the disc.
4 - Cut the remaining quater of the tissue.
Step 2: Core Forming
6 - Wrap the disc above this ball and fold it around the body of the pen.
Step 3: Bondage...
8 - I had to cut the remaining part of the cable tie.
Step 4: Erase Stuff
Well... now you have the gears to erase the smallest detail on a white board, the clean way. If the tip is at some point dirty, get rid of it and make a new one...
Unrealistic people are going to tell me that you still can be precise with standard eraser. However... they forgot one thing: in the real business office life, your eraser was stollen by another team.
Put a small magnet in the core of the ball. If you have it properly placed, you can have the pen sticking to the board.
Gluonnement vôtre... I know, I changed your life today.
