Pencils are fantastic for a whole bunch of reasons — chief among them being that they let people write in outer space — and the Pencil+ is a pencil extender that lets consumers make the most out of their old-fashioned writing implements. The unassuming cylinder is a multipurpose tool that rids the pencil of some of the major faults that are inherent to the utensil, making it last longer and function more effectively.

The Pencil+'s primary purpose is to serve as a pencil extender. The cylinder is just slightly wider than the average pencil's diameter; consumers insert their pencils into the tool, and as they get smaller over time, Pencil+ pushes them forward. Even when one's pencil is a tiny nub, the tool lets them use the last of the lead. It also comes with a sharpener built into the transverse end.
