USUS io Stylus Pen Aluminium Ballpoint and Stylus Pen. A radical new design from USUS-Berlin, Germany. Magnetism holds the case together. No threads, springs, clips or other moving parts. To replace the refill you simply pull the top and bottom apart. The two halves rotate in either direction to extend and retract the refill. Quality German engineering and an innovative application of magnetic force make this a unique and original writing instrument.
And this is new: a mechanism based on magnets that replaces the conventional loose parts, threads and springs. You can twist the mechanism in either direction with no possibility of damage.
The tail end can be used as a PDA stylus. The two parts of the barrel are easily separated to change the refill. The io is playful in usage and fascinating in technology and an implement at the highest level of manufacture and design that is fun to use.
The IO pen is made from solid aircraft aluminium with a noble finish provided by a very special nano-coating. The clear streamlining of the housing, its ergonomic design and its innovative magnetic technology ensure that these pens will become treasured possessions.
This unique pen is the perfect present.
