Mutant pen grows an SD card

Yet another step for the ever-evolving writing instrument.


We thought the whole pen convergence trend had subsided after seeing the most recent combo devices with built-in camcorders and DVRs . But video is apparently only the beginning for the versatile writing instrument, which also has designs on the storage market.

There have been many USB memory pens , as Chip Chick has noted, but now things have gotten downright silly with an SD card reader. The "3 in 1 Cocos Card Reader" also has a USB drive and actually writes, hence the three functions, with storage of up to 512MB.

But unlike the earlier surveillance-oriented pens, we wouldn't recommend this one for covert activities. A pen with a rectangle sticking out of it isn't exactly an everyday sight.
