Power Pen: Write and Charge

Power Pen

 

The Power Pen is the one pen to rule them all. Reach for it every time you need to jot down notes, sketch ideas, or charge your phone. Yep, you read that right: the pen doubles as a backup battery so you make one more call or send a few more messages before it completely runs out of juice. It only has a 700 mAh capacity, so it can’t charge your battery fully, but that’s better than nothing, right?

The Power Pen’s ink tip also retracts so you can use it as a stylus. It comes with micro USB and lightning connectors, and you can charge the pen up easily by plugging it into a USB port. It retails for $40.

Write in Whatever Color You Want with Scribble

Scribble Pen

 

You know that eyedropper tool in most image editing programs that lets you lift and use whatever color you want to, as long as it’s there on your screen? Well, the Scribble pen works like that, only it’s infinitely cooler because it’s a pen, for crying out loud. One end is the scanner (aka the physical eyedropper), while the other end is the pen which does all the writing.

Scribble uses 16-bit color sensors and Bluetooth technology to make it happen. What’s impressive is the fact that it can store up to 100,000 different colors. So scan that shirt, the rose that you just got, or your neighbor’s curtain–every color is within reach, now that you’ve got a tool as nifty at this.

Scribble will be available in two versions: the ink version, which comes with ink cartridges so you can write, scribble, and draw to your heart’s content; and the stylus version, which works with the Scribble+ app to make colors come alive on your mobile device. A Kickstarter campaign is planned for the pen. You can sign up on the Scribble website here for updates.

This Pen Transforms Into Optimus Prime and Vice Versa

Transformer Convoy Pen

For the first two, you’ve got the Transformers that do exactly just that. For the latter, you’ve got the Transformer Convoy Pen by Sentinel. It’s not exactly the most comfortable or handiest pens to use or hold when it’s in pen form, but the awesomeness of it when it’s in robot toy form more than makes up for it.

And who else should it transform to but Optimus Prime?

Electric Paint Pen With Conductive Ink Could Teach You Basics About Circuits

electric-paint-pen

This is a pen with a special ink that when dry, will conduct electricity. Meaning you can literally draw some basic circuits on a piece of cardboard and they’ll work. Connect them to some resistors, or LEDs or whatever else elements go into a circuit and teach yourself or a young one the fundamentals. The surface resistivity is 55 Ω/Sq @ 50 microns, if that has any meaning to you, and you should probably not use it with voltages above 12V. It’ll work on just about any surface except skin, and maybe metal and will set you back all of $12 or $19 for two.
