Most people think that pens and pencils only serve the one function -- and for the most part they are right, but the Yang:Ripol Pencil V2.0 proves them wrong with an added elastic capability.

In a world where most of the time we type out our thoughts on our laptops, iPads or smartphones, the need for pens and pencils are minimal. However, there are those who like to carry around a few loose pens in their backpack or purse. In such cases, it is an annoyance to have to scrounge through a full bag to get to evasive writing utensils. The Pencil V2.0 has an elastic embedded in the shaft's heart so that multiple markers or highlighters may be coupled together in a bundle for easy accessibility and improved organization.
