How handy would it be to have a pair of chopsticks with you at all times for everyday situations? Sushi falling out of the sky? Boom. Chopsticks. A chow mien truck tips over? Chopsticks. Yuan Design has come up with an upgraded version of the classic chopstick concept of two wooden sticks with relatively equal length.
The design, called PenstiX, allows the metal pair to be hidden in a compact metal rod with a cap. Assembling it together, it looks like nothing more than an ordinary pen. You could literally carry them with you at all times.The “pen cap” once disassembled, acts as a chopstick holder allowing them to avoid touching a grimy table surface. They’re also reusable and easy to clean.
I’ve heard of many novelty chopsticks that claim to be the world’s smallest, but I kind of actually believe this one. Not too ridiculously small where they would be useless but small enough to carry around. Currently, PenstiX is sourcing funding at Indiegogo with a $38 donation being the minimum to receive a pair.
To quote Dirk Diggler in a recent blockbuster movie, “I don’t think it’s a pen at all! I think we found a Transformer.”
