Geek Pen (for Luddites)

If you’re a geek and you haven’t yet scored a tablet, you might still need an implement for cursive writing (listen to GNC#603).  If that’s the case, then check out the Circuit Board Pen available on Etsy.

The polished circuit board body will certainly mark you out as a geek even if you don’t have an iPad.  Cost is $45 with $3.50 shipping – definitely cheaper than an iPad too.

According to the blurb, the underlying pen is a Wall Street II which takes Cross refills. I gather this is a popular pen for modding rather than Gordon Gecko’s favourite.

If you are not familiar with Etsy, it’s a great website for handicrafts and other personal items.  Always worth checking if you are looking for a special present.
