…Is this fantastic metal pen, from ThinkGeek. It writes in metal! For real.
It also writes upside-down and underwater! I had a geeky stationerygasm (I love stationery, most girls do) when I saw it. Not to mention that the fact that it writes in metal just blew my mind.
Here’s what ThinkGeek said about the pen:
In an emergency, you need a writing implement – something that will always be within hand’s reach, will never run out of ink, and won’t smear when you run your flop-sweaty mitts all over the paper. This pen writes in metal! Not graphite like a pencil or ink like a pen that smears and becomes unreadable. The lead-based alloy leaves a permanent mark that won’t smudge or be erased.
Fantastic stuff. More info here.
