Derek Seiple, maker of the $1,300 Lego chess set, is back. This time he has turned his considerable brickmanship to the low-tech pen, making these round-barreled biros from cylindrical Legos.
Available in either multicolored stripes or a single color, the chunky pens also come with a little plastic cap to cover the nib, although it looks to be about as safe and effective as those tip-covering prophylactics nobody uses anymore. Sure, you could put together your own, but why bother when Derek has already done the hard work of separating out all the round pieces?
One tip: don’t chew on these pens as enthusiastically as you would a regular pen. Not unless you’re with a friend who is happy to perform the Heimlich Maneuver when a plastic brick dislocates itself from the pen-end, gets sucked down toward your gullet and lodges in your throat. $13.
