New Pencils Feature Shock Absorbers And Shields To Prevent Lead Breakage

Oh the frustration of breaking the lead on your automatic pencil. There you are, in the zone, when snap!, and you lose your train of thought. Mindful of your very real first world problems, Japanese company Zebra Co. designed the DelGuard pencil, which features a pretty sophisticated system of shock absorbers and retractable shields used specifically for preventing the lead from breaking. One spring takes care of vertical pressure by retracting the lead, while the other senses diagonal pressure and extends a lead-proteting shield. Combined, they should save you at least seconds of frustration.

The DelGuard pencils come out November 12 in Japan, and will sell for about 450 Yen (about $4).

The Accutrax Pencil Blade: For When Your Puny Old Pencil Is Just Not Manly Enough

accutrax

You’re doing all kinds of jobs, remodeling the house, cutting things, hammering others, and generally getting your hands dirty. Good on you. You’re probably using a boring old pencil to trace cut lines though, right? Bet you wish you didn’t get such a sad little tool, don’t you? Bet you wish you’d gotten these Accutrax pencil blades. Blades, that’s right! These will fit any standard box cutter tool, but instead of cutting stuff, they’ll do what pencils do and trace lines. But they’ll do so while being house in a freaking box cutter tool, man. If that’s not something you wanna be totin’ round the construction site, we don’t know what kind of a construction worker you are.

It’s $10 for 3.
