Magnetically Charged Pens

'Quotidian Pen' Incorporates Magnetic Propulsion Technology

— October 31, 2016 — Tech
'Quotidian Pen' is a unique writing implement that is perfectly suited to the writer who can't help but fidget. Though attractively pared down in terms of aesthetic, the Quotidian Pen is loaded with advanced physical features that set it apart from any other pen.

Unlike mechanical pens whose nibs extend when the writer presses a button, Quotidian Pen's nib extends and contracts with the use of magnets. The pen's cap contains a strong Neodymium magnet, and when that magnet attracts onto the end of the pen, its subsequent repellent force pushes the nib of the pen out from the body.

Beyond this unique extension, Quotidian Pen's magnetic cap allows for ample fidgeting. When attached to the front of the pen (i.e. when the pen is closed) users can flick it absentmindedly or even rotate it around the edge with a swirl of the wrist.
Trend Themes
1. Magnetic Propulsion Technology - The use of magnets for propulsion in writing implements could lead to innovative designs and enhanced user experiences.
2. Interactive Writing Tools - Pens that incorporate interactive features like magnets provide a new way for writers to engage with their writing instruments.
3. Fidget-friendly Pens - Pens with features that cater to fidgeting habits offer a unique and satisfying writing experience for users.
Industry Implications
1. Stationery Industry - The stationery industry can explore the incorporation of magnetic propulsion technology into their product lines, creating pens with a distinctive appeal.
2. Gadget and Accessories Industry - Companies in the gadget and accessories industry can develop interactive pens with magnetic features to cater to consumers who seek innovative and engaging writing tools.
3. Promotional Products Industry - The promotional products industry can leverage the popularity of fidgeting pens by offering customized magnetic pens as unique and attention-grabbing promotional items.
