This pen is just a hunk of metal alloy molded to look like a pen. Why is this significant? Because it does exactly what a real ink pen does: writes on paper. It doesn’t leave the same type of mark that an ink pen does, this pen’s marks cannot be erased or smudged! At only $30, it’s a bargain, and the maker rates it at longer than a 25 year life span. A cool little bit of history:
In the Medieval period, artists and scribes often used a metal stylus in order to draw on a specially prepared paper surface. Generally known as Metalpoint, or Silverpoint when the stylus was made of silver, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, D ¼rer and Rembrandt all used this technique.
High tech? Maybe it’s more innovative than high tech; it’s making the best use of what we have to do better than current ways. — Nik Gomez
