Wind-Up Robot Pencil Sharpener

Wind-Up Robot Pencil Sharpener (Images courtesy Hawkin's Bazar)
By Andrew Liszewski

While this pencil sharpener doesn’t really improve on the design or function of sharpeners in general it does provide a fun pay-off to the whole process.

The turning motion of sharpening a pencil is used to wind-up a clockwork mechanism causing this classic sci-fi themed robot to wander around your desk for a few seconds. And if you find yourself completely out of pencils the robot also comes with a winding key to keep it going.

Get your own Wind-up Robot pencil sharpener at Hawkin’s Bazar for ?3.50.
