The Pen Company


While looking through The Pen Company‘s products last week I came across a slightly unusual pen from Scheinder: the Base Senso. The description read ‘This rollerball can sense when too much pressure is being applied, and will warn by illuminating the light at the end of the pen‘. How curious.

Easger to find out more I went to Schneider’s web site which provided some further information: The pen ‘indicates when too much writing pressure is exerted and teaches how to judge the right pressure for fluid writing. Ideal for beginners and for people with motor difficulties‘.

There’s even a seal that implies this pen has been developed together with a a joint expert.

An interesting idea. I’m just imagining a classroom full of children with blinking pens…

I haven’t had a good idea (yet?)…
