The Rec & Play pen is an extraordinary hybrid writing tool. Essentially, it "combines sound, sight and physical movement," according to PSFK, creating the most practical piece of stationary you could ever own.

Designed by Yuri Suzuki and Oscar Diaz, the Rec & Play pen uses a special ferromagnetic ink which records the surrounding audio when coupled with a microphone head and a piece of paper. To play back, users simply have to retrace the line made on the piece of paper. Stats for Audio-Recording Stationary Trending: Older & Chilly
