Light pen

Good morning everyone,

It was raining earlier but it has stopped for the moment. It looks like it's going to rain off and on all day and into tomorrow. Then Thursday is looking overcast with the rain returning on Friday. Yes, it's still rainy season...

Usually, we were talking about t light pen, you'd think it wasn't heavy or that there was a flashlight on the opposite end, right? Not this one. This pen really lights things up. It's called AgIC pen and you can actually make things light up using the 'ink' from the pen.

Japanese company Kandenko, who is involved in many fields including electrical and telecommunication, has released a new video featuring an AgIC pen, which allows you to draw ink that instantly conducts electricity over paper. All you need is some watch batteries and mini lights and your imagination.

The charming artistic appeal of the pen is illustrated in all its glory in this short promotional video called, “Future with bright lights”.

The pen takes us on a journey through little streets and towns lighting up the path as it goes along.

▼ I think I may be even able to draw this one!

A token hand appears in the video to erect paper structures as the electric circuit effortlessly forms.

The producers based some of their ideas on children’s pop up books and took several takes to get that perfect shot.

The soothing flow of the video and relaxing music may gently inspire you to create your own electricity art. Like...

Here is a poster made using ink like that found in the AgIC pen.

It looks like the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

The AgIC pen can be purchased online from Amazon Japan for Y1,296...thank god they sell watch batteries at the Y100 Shop...ha ha!

If the video doesn't play directly from my blog, it's worth going to YouTube to check it out. It's really interesting, yet somehow relaxing at the same time.

Have a great day!
