Using a patented process, real circuit boards are wrapped around a tube and cast in crystal-clear acrylic. Shaping the acrylic on the lathe takes a bit of time - reducing the acrylic to the smallest diameter possible, while allowing enough to protect the 3-D components. Polishing the acrylic to the point that is almost disappears - magnifying the circuits like a fine watch crystal.
The final effect is really fun - you can almost touch the gold, silver, copper, black, white and brown features on the circuit board. With its premium transmission, the refill extends and retracts very smoothly.
Chrome is a very durable plating that should maintain its shiny finish for many years.
Comfortable to hold, easy to write with and very interesting to look at - this pen has it all.
