Life Beyond Ink: The High Tech Pen

We’ve found a pen that just might save your life. No, it is not the Swiss Army of pens with knives, screwdrivers and a bottle opener attached. And yes, we may have exaggerated just a little bit about saving your life. But when your phone dies and nowhere near a charger, how do you feel? A little like the end of world, right? No worries, there’s an easy solution that doesn’t involve carrying a large phone battery pack.

Enter Beyond Ink and their new high-tech pen that promises to do everything from store your files and recharge your phone. And yes it can write too. The designers behind pen thought it was time to reinvent this age old instrument and update it for today. We all live by our phones, so why not include an integrated charger? Data is king these days, so why not include a hidden flash memory storage key? It all sounds a little James Bond (aka 007) and that works for us. The sleek design ensures that this souped-up pen feels like any other higher end writing instrument – luxurious finish, a good weight, and smooth writing.

The Beyond Ink pen features:

  • High-end ballpoint tip for clear and attractive ink writing
  • Easily-interchangeable Stylus to assist with simple touchscreen tasks
  • Built-in rechargeable 1000 mAh backup battery
  • 16GB Flash Memory Storage
  • Micro-USB/Lightning Phone Cable, subtly integrated.

“There will always be a need for a nice pen, but there are no rules saying they can’t evolve like everything else,” said Emanuel Daniel, founder of Beyond Ink. “We set out to create the perfect hybrid of style and substance, and I think once people try it, there will be no going back.”

Beyond Ink pens are available in black or white through their online site and retail for $70.
