Inkless Metal Pen

December 30, 2006

An abnormally happened on the 29th of December… there was no posting! Why? The big earthquake did it… yup… technogad was running but the images are not uploadable… Look how much we have relied on the internet…

This stainless steel Metal Pen writes on most paper using the metal “nib” on the tip. The pen works by leaving bits of the metal alloy on most surfaces. Once the pen does “dry up” (after all the writing, it will be blunted), you’ll have to get a new one but it last longer than a pencil. £14.99, its nice to have it as an emergency… but still can’t help when the submarine cables breaks.
