The pen features a thick barrel and cap which is latched to a loop which allows it to be linked to a cellphone or threaded through another receptacle. Each touch pen measures 10cm or 3.93" long. NCS supplies the pens as a complete set of 6. The touch pens are also available individually on a separate shop listing. All preorders will ship today and new orders are welcome.

Rubik's Clock

By the time the Rubik's Cube had passed critical mass in the early 80s, it had sold a total of 250 million units worldwide. The mania crested nearly two decades ago but the recognizable toy is still being sold and licenses are still being granted for products based on the best-selling puzzle. Banpresto hooks onto the Rubik franchise and plans two wall clocks which feature Rubik's Cube designs. The first clock sports yellow, red, blue, and white colors with the Rubik's Cube logo slightly off-center. The second clock shows a Cube in mid-twist with the logo on the right side of the clock. All preorders ship today and new orders are welcome.
