For perfectionists, the Sharpie liquid pencil

The classic permanent-ink marker gets a new twist as a utensil that writes like a pen but erases like a pencil.

I'd say without hesitation that this is a "sharp idea"--if I only had more time to decide whether to erase it. Sharpie

Indecisive people of the world, we bring you Sharpie's new liquid pencil.

The reinvented classic writes like a pen, but erases like a pencil. And here's the thing wavering minds might like: the liquid graphite "ink" doesn't become permanent for three days, so you have a full 72 hours to decide if you want that treacly poem you wrote to your friend/roommate/mom/amor (with pen and paper, no less!) to live on in perpetuity.

The new liquid pencil will hit stores next month, according to the Sharpie Blog. But Wired noticed that Office Depot is already selling a version at $5 for two pens and six erasers.
