Din-Ink! The pen is mightier than the fork. Answered

Want to know what a designer or a food writer might use to eat with in the future? These Din-Ink pen caps/utensils let you eat your food and then write about it immediately after. It's a bizarre fusion of two ideas and I'd be concerned about some sauce getting inside the cap, but it certainly is a conversation piece.

I can see it now, someone chomps down on the spoon or fork, the cap comes off while in the mouth, and they absentmindedly dip the pen into the food. :-) It is a unique idea though.

I think "special" is the term you were looking for... ;-)

it would be better if they didnt use such cheap pens. but then again, you can put the cap on many different pens if they run out of ink!
