Technology long ago reached the point where it helped to satisfy our more urgent needs: food, shelter, warmth, etc.
So now, of course, it exists primarily to make life incrementally less annoying. Which is how you end tp with this – a pen that never runs out.
The Pininfarina Cambiano Inkless Pen has an ethergraph tip which means it can write forever, without needing refilled.
The tip is just a precise as a sharp pencil, but the mark it leaves is as permanent as ink.
The sleek design – handcrafted from Italian aluminium and wood – is a bonus, but the really delight is never again having to shake it hopelessly or lick the nib in order to jot down a phone number.
Now all they need to do is invent a pen you never lose down the back of the sofa, and technology can take the rest of the week off.
