    Default Mine crazy invention

    I did a thing 🤫It's something different than my usual work, I just had an idea but also needed a break. So in my mind, I had this vision of a pen that looks like a very early batiscaf, something from Julius Verne's books. Also, I wanted to avoid typical locking solutions to emphasize more "the old look" times when they just experiment and no standard solutions were invented. It's not a practical pen by any means, it's more like a novelty pen, a conversation starter. Of course, it works fine but perhaps not for writing your autobiography if you are older than 12.

    That's a very handsome pen. You can insert a video by clicking on the film icon.

    Mine worked. It's a Facebook video. At first I thought you had made a periscope /safety type pen. I guess that would have been too complicated. This is one handsome, elegant pen

    A most interesting concept!
    Cant wait to hear from the it takes too many turns to remove the cap crowd.
    Myself, Im part of the the moving parts are too tiny for my aged fingers.
    Keep up the good work.

    Yes it is a Facebook video but it still requested a sign-in for me.

    You need to take more breaks if those resulted in inventions like this

    I am a huge fan of anything in vintage style. This is by far the most interesting custom-made pen I've seen to date.

    Tried that and it didn't work for me. I see a page but the video doesn't play because it wants me to sign-in or register. No play button anywhere.

    Sorry I really do not know how to help you you can visit my instagram @milim_info and I posted it there, but I can't not give you a link because Instagram in its infinite wisdom I think blocked me without any reason and I'm trying to access my own account.

    You are not only walking the line between genius and madness, you are doing tricks on it like an acrobat on a high wire!
