Award winning industrial design consultant and engineer Rotimi Solola based in Chicago, has built a new minimalist pen aptly named the Alt pen, which is not only a writing and drawing instrument but also a precision screwdriver. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the functionality of the Alt pen which is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from $49 or approximately £37.
Designer Rotimi explains more about the inspiration behind the minimalist Alt pen. “The ball point pen has always been my preferred tool when designing. This is a tool I carry everywhere I go, because you never know when inspiration will strike. Knowing that if I could somehow take advantage of this and create a tool that meets my standards, then I will have something with the potential to enrich the lives of others.”
“I designed Alt pen to be useful for those in technical fields like engineering, design, and IT, but I quickly found that with attention to detail and style, this will be a product that will fit into people’s day to day. A pen that is so well designed and balanced that you would want to take it everywhere you go.” For a full list of available pledges which will start shipping out to backers during December 2018 If all goes well with manufacturing, jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page by following the link below.
