The folks over at Sharpie have apparently decided that something like the pencil–an invention that has existed as a graphite/lead-based writing implement for time immemorial–needed reinventing. Indeed, the Sharpie Liquid Pencil is the Cyberdyne Systems T-1000 to the traditional No. 2’s T-101. Better in every way… and liquid. Terminator metaphors aside, Sharpie’s pen does in fact use liquid like a pen… but it is easily erased like a pencil’s lead. Additionally, the liquid pen(cil’s) tip is a super-fine 0.5 mm, giving it the same precision of a mechanical pencil. It should be said that this… thing… runs the substantial risk of becoming self-aware and ending our world via nuclear holocaust. Buyer beware.
