If there's one thing we know about medieval times, it's that it was the pinnacle of technological advancement.
Pencil / pen is a worthless implement for writing and will become a useless paper weight aswell. If you are looking for something to start the conversation as to "Where did you get this piece of BLANK?" then this is right up your alley.
Save your money and spend it on something more substantial, like a bunch of Bics or #2 pencils.
Inkless pen...

So it's a pencil?

yes but you cant erase it
I've had mine for a couple days now, and unless I'm missing something, it's pretty much useless. The tip is smooth, but the line is so light that I'd be better off scratching indentions into the paper with my fingernail. The only way I can get visible marks is to go over the same spot several times, and even then, it's just entirely too light.

This is on several different kinds of white paper, for what it's worth. If I was using cream or yellow, I can't imagine you'd see anything at all.
Hey All, To answer some questions, Yes you are writing with a solid metal tip, writes a grey/silver line as it is leaving traces of the metal on the paper. Will take it a very very long time to ware down. It is a lifetime of notes, not daily journal writing, but will still last you so much longer than a pencil or pen. You can sharper by twisting in a piece of sand paper. It is permanent on the paper, doesn't smudge or erase and doesn't have any ink to leak or graphite to smudge your hand. Its best uses are for notes and sketches for when you want something to work when you need it to work. We have been using the original style for years at trade shows ( used a lot at these shows) and still has yet to drop by 1/2 the tip.
You can see people writing with it on youtube (inkless pen) but, people advise you to rub it on the paper the first time you want to write with it, until you get the smooth you want. And then, it’ll easier to write.
Would be nice to see a sample of it writing. I have a similar product and it is hardly practical for writing...
Actually, it’s a pen with a metal nib (you can see videos on youtube when you type Inkless Pen) for more infos. It doesn’t leave anything on your finger, you can write under water, on any type of paper. It does last forever if, of course, you don’t write 24h a day with it 😉.
You don’t get to refill it because there is no ink, it’s metal. It’s like writing with a stone.
Does it really last forever? Pretty sure I can wear the tip out...

That's what she said
Could someone please explain how this works? If it "leaves a trail of metal" how would you go about refilling it? And with what? Or is it a one use item and when it runs out you replace it? Yes, I'm an idiot, thank you very much.

From Wired: "A tiny amount of metal alloy transfers from the pen to the page. Unlike pencil, it can’t be smudged with your hand, and unlike ink, it doesn’t need to dry. The amount of alloy for each stroke is so tiny that the pens are expected to last a lifetime without needing to be refilled or replaced. You can sharpen the tips for a finer point with a little sandpaper."

It's not a pen. It's not a pencil. It writes like a pencil if you press really hard. It has a solid silver tip which slowly rubs down and leaves a trail of atoms of silver when you write. It takes years to wear out, and will last a lifetime if you only use it once in awhile.
