With this in mind, you probably wouldn’t throw it like a dice, or perhaps, wouldn’t even roll it. Or maybe you will be compelled to do so if you have the Pencil Dice by Sebastian Bergne. Pencil Dice is essentially a regular six-sided pencil. You know. The hexagonal cross-section pencil made of soft wood that has a long stick of lead embedded in its core?

Not Everyone Needs A Pencil, But If You Need One, Grafton May Just Be It

Meet 01, The Pen That Measures With A Surveyor’s Wheel-Like Roller

Most of us don’t carry a measuring tape or even ruler with us even knowing that it will come in handy. But that’s not surprising at all. Though tape measures and rulers are not cumbersome, they are a pain to bring along anyways and also, they are not exactly eye-pleasing and nobody likes a 30-cm ruler sticking out of their bags either.

A Squeeze Is All You Need To Start Writing With if… Pen. No Click, No Twist

Tech and style are not the only things this blog look out for. Uniqueness, or on the opposite end of the spectrum, oddity, is also something that intrigues us and such is what the if… Pen (yup, that’s the product’s name) has.

The squeezing action retracts an integrated cap protecting the ballpoint. So, the ballpoint does not shoot out as one might have imagined. Intriguing, isn’t it? Continue reading A Squeeze Is All You Need To Start Writing With if… Pen. No Click, No Twist
