Hitachi had a big booth at Maker Faire Detroit and was giving out these awesome pens. I may have walked by a couple of extra times throughout the day. 😉
I’d never seen anything like these. Some Googling found several variations. Some had a full length ruler instead of the knurled grip seen here. You can get one for $8-10 on Amazon. A bulk supplier, selling a version almost identical to this, has the pens listed for than $2 if you’re ordering a bunch. The features of all of the versions were common:
- Ruler (inches and centimeters)
- Stylus (use with a touch screen)
- Phillips screwdriver
- Flathead screwdriver
Since I got 3 of the pens, I put one in my car, one at my hobby desk, and one at my garage workbench.
