The Circuit Board Pen Is a Forgivable Oxymoron

It's true, just as it's tough to simultaneously enjoy outhouses and Japanese toilets, chances are that you won't dually appreciate both circuit boards and pens.

Still, we had to write (type, I should say) about the Circuit Board Pen. Not just some ballpoint coated in a cheap electronic veneer, the pen features a real circuit board painstakingly wrapped in an extremely thin layer of custom-lathed acrylic.

The result is a touchable circuit board pen that hopefully will not cut or poison you. And while its $80 price may seem a tad steep, that's really pretty reasonable when viewed from the admittedly skewed niche of collectible pens. [Pens As Art Thanks Robert!]
