Thanko Corp. recently introduced a ballpoint pen that has a built-in SD card reader, the "SD Darake no Card Reader Pen (card reader pen with lots of SD memory cards)," for direct sale on the web site.
The pen measures 15 millimeters in diameter and 150 mm long with the penholder that has four SD memory card slots. The section of the penholder that has the card reader inside can be separated from the ballpoint pen section. The penholder holds a USB terminal for connecting to a personal computer. All the four slots can be used for both reading and writing simultaneously. Data can be moved among the four SD cards with one another.
The ballpoint pen comes with two extra refills and a USB cable. It is priced at 1,480 yen.
