Classic Macintosh Pen Holder: The Mac is Mightier than the Pen
February 19th, 2013
It’s been nearly 30 years since the original Macintosh hit the scene, so that definitely makes me feel old. But despite being ancient technology, I still love the little computer that smiled at you when you powered it on, and frowned when it crashed. And while I’m currently working on a 2011 iMac with a 27-inch screen, I’ve finally found a way to keep a classic Macintosh on my desktop.
Thanks to Technabob friend, artist, and all around good guy Metin Seven, we can now have a happy Mac to hold on to our pens! It measures about 2.6″ x 2.6″ x 3.3″, and is perfect for holding onto all of your pens, pencils, X-Actos and other long and pointy desktop objects. Thanks to the miracles of 3D printing tech, you can get your grubby little mitts on this classic Mac pen holder for about $53(USD).
Just don’t try cramming a 3.5″ MacPaint disk into that tiny drive slot. It’ll take way more than a paper clip to get it out of there if you wedge one in there.
