The problem with letting prisoners use regular pens is that a few of them (pens, that is) eventually go missing. Well, not exactly missing, but just not locatable until until they're eventually found inside someone's thigh, spleen, or eyeball. This Prison Pen hopes to solve that dilemma by making the pen soft, and therefore unshivvable.

We've seen enough movies to know that just about anything can be made into a shiv, so it'll just be a matter of time that we'll need to move on to allowing prisoners to write with finger paints.
