  • Publication number: 20100095545
    Abstract: A device for creating a chalk drawing on a surface includes a base adapted to rest on the surface, a housing cover rotatably connected to the base and a direction indicator indicating a rotational position of the housing cover with respect to the base. A tape measure assembly is connected to the housing cover and includes a tape measure that may be moved between extended and contracted conditions. The tape measure includes a distal end portion. A position of the distal end portion of the tape measure and a rotational position of the housing cover with respect to the base establish coordinates for a plot point of the chalk drawing. A method for creating a chalk drawing using the device is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 6874785
    Abstract: A set of cards for playing a card game is described. Each of said cards is printed with indicia essential for the playing of the game and one or more of said cards is printed with such indicia towards a central region of the card, that is inwardly disposed from the perimeter edge. In accordance with the invention, one or more of said cards in the set is provided with one or more apertures in predetermined locations within said central region to allow at least some of the indicia printed in the central region of a first card to be seen through the apertures of second and optionally further cards when said second and further cards are superposed over said first card.
