The Japanese design label H-Concept is no stranger to cool, mind-boggling designs, and its latest creation is by designer Hiroyuki Shiratori, who has come out with erasers that are shaped like humans throughout history.

From our ancient ancestors to the current, modern form of human beings, these erasers demonstrate the evolution of man. Spoon & Tamago shares a funny story about how Hiroyuki Shiratori came up with this idea: "He was studying German language but his awful grammar forced him to use his eraser more than he would have liked. Having grown tired of the mundane act of erasing, he decided to create an eraser that 'evolved' the more you use it."

Available in different colors, the Evolution Erasers are not only practical, but a great way to brush up on the theory of evolution every time you use them.
