The all-in-one pen

If, like us, you usually use your pen for either writing or biting then you'll probably be rather surprised with all the things you could be doing instead.

Croatian designer Ivan Mavrović has brought the Swiss Army knife ideal to the, usually quite dull, pen and created an invention that does pretty much everything.

The Metapen is a gadget that contains the following: a fork, a knife, a USB stick, a watch, a light, a screwdriver, a pipe, a toothbrush, a shaving blade, a nail clipper and, well, a pen.

At the moment it's just a prototype but we want one to play with. Now.

You can check out more of Ivan's designs here.
