Stuff We Like: BaliYo pen

File this one under Strange but Fun. From the maker of some of the best knives on the market, Spyderco, comes the new BaliYo.

At its root, BaliYo is a pen. A good one too: a 4 1/4-inch-long Fisher Space Pen that can write underwater, upside down, in freezing temps, just about anywhere.

What makes it unique are the two weight balanced arms that swing open and enable you to flick open and spin the pen around in your hand. It comes with an instructional DVD to show how to make the pen do flips, aerials, even two-handed tricks. Sound strange? Told you so. But the BaliYo promotes hand-eye coordination, and it’s also kind of fun.

Here’s a video from the manufacturer that shows what it can do.

Check out the BaliYo website for the how-to trick videos and you’ll get a better sense of what this thing is all about. $25;
