The Six Mile Pencil


Sun, Sep 28th, 2014 21:00 by capnasty NEWS

International design agency Lyon & Lyon is currently seeking financial support to kickstart The Six Mile Pencil. The pencil comes complete with distance points to determine just how much you've written or drawn.

In a bid to create an honest low tech product, the six mile pencil was born from the idea of encouraging people to get back in touch with the almost redundant skill of using a pencil. The pencil displays how many miles of graphite you have used and how far your thoughts have travelled. With every hand drawn sketch, memo or offensive doodle of your boss, you can visibly see how far you've drawn and fist pump the air at every milestone. The pencils are available in both mile and kilometre variations. So whether it be a half a mile or five miles, the more you draw, the better you get.
