Since traditional stationery such as pens, erasers and even paper are being pushed out of the limelight by more expensive albeit eco-friendly devices like smartphones and tablets, more creative designs are necessary to reel people back in; take the Pencil Broom, for instance. As kitschy as it may be, the design is cute and creative enough to have both girls and guys ooo-ing and ahh-ing over it.
Designed by Artori Design, the Pencil Broom is exactly what it sounds like. In place of an eraser, the Pencil Broom boasts, well, a broom. Perfect for sweeping up mistakes, or more accurately, the remnants of a mistake, the broom is actually an eraser. The long, flat surface even allows it to be propped up conveniently. It is sold by Animi Causa.
