Recycled Motherboard Pen Scores An ‘A’ For Nerd Appeal And An ‘F’ For Ergonomics

Recycled Motherboard Pen Scores An ‘A’ For Nerd Appeal And An ‘F’ For Ergonomics

By Andrew Liszewski

I’m sure we’ve all seen the plethora of accessories made from stripped circuit boards, including everything from Christmas tree ornaments to clipboards, but this is the first time I’ve seen someone attempt to make a pen from one, and I can understand why. You see companies like Montblanc, and even BIC, spend a lot of time perfecting the ergonomics of their writing instruments so they feel comfortable in your hand.

But I’m afraid ‘comfort’ isn’t the first term that pops to mind when I look at this pen entombed in a circuit board coffin. Sure it’s interesting to look at, made from recycled materials and will never roll off your desk, but those things won’t make it comfortable to use for anything longer than signing your name. $4.99 from Perpetual Kid.
