Star Wars Lightsaber Pens: Write With Light
Just when I thought the Star Wars merchandising team couldn’t come up with another use for lightsabers, they came up with the latest in office supply technology – the lightsaber ballpoint pen.
Created in collaboration with Taito, these Star Wars Lightsaber Hiraku pens not only write, but they light up thanks to a colorful LED insider the “sword.” They’re working on four different models, including both Jedi and Imperial sabers to sign your contracts with. They look a little fat and stubby compared to a “real” lightsaber, but then again lightsabers aren’t really real, so I’ll forgive Taito and Lucas on this one.
You’ll have to wait until October 2010 to get yours, but NCSX is taking pre-orders now for $9.80 (USD) per sword.
