Writing implements aren't going to be supplanted by touchscreen devices anytime soon. But that isn't stopping Bic from hedging its bets and ensuring its classic see-through plastic pens remain relevant.
The company's new Cristal Stylus features a rubber tip on the bottom letting you jot notes on a touchscreen device, while the business end still features a ballpoint ink tip for writing on paper.
There are a couple of catches, though. At around £9 for three they're definitely more expensive than their non-rubber-bottomed equivalent. Plus those of us who chew the ends of pens to shreds will need to find another vice. [Bic and Amazon]
