    Pelikan pen company is on target, introducing its Special Edition series 600 Vibrant Orange pen collection in perfect synchronicity with the season.

    Orange is the color of fall, from pumpkins to turning leaves, from lengthening russet shadows to the glow of a Harvest Moon. And the Germany-based Pelikan pen company is on target, introducing its Special Edition series 600 Vibrant Orange pen collection in perfect synchronicity with the season.

    Pelikan, of course, is not the only brand to offer an orange fountain pen. The Italy-based Delta pen company, as an example, created the Dolcevita collection a number of years ago, and it was one of the first contemporary luxury pen companies to do so. The vivid color was suggestive of the sunny disposition its name conjured (the translation of dolce vita is “sweet life”) and the bright orange and black pens always brought a smile to my face.

    Other luxury brands, too, have offered—and continue to offer—orange writing instruments. Caran d’Ache’s Leman collection includes a lovely Saffron pen whose barrel is a spicy shade of orange paired with a silver cap. On the opposite end of the price spectrum is Retro 51’s super-affordable Tornado collection, with its Classic Lacquers series including an orange-colored rollerball or ballpoint. As a timely aside, Pantone, in its Fall 2018 Color Trend Report, named Russet Orange as the new bold hue, noting, “This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.” Pumpkin spice latte, anyone?

    This Souverän® 600 is crafted from a bright orange acrylic, and it apparently took several tries to achieve the perfect hue of bright fall leaves. Just like those leaves, the color is highly nuanced.

    Scriba is a Bluetooth stylus that features a capacitive tip and works in conjunction with sensors.

    If you are presently scratching your head and thinking what this alien-looking handheld device is, then you would be surprised that it is a capacitive Bluetooth stylus with an ergonomic design. Yes, it is conventional capacitive stylus with a twist. It works together with Bluetooth and a couple of sensors to give your artistic hand a freedom of speech.

    Confusing right? Actually, you have to see and use it to believe it.

    The Scriba is a new-age digital stylus. Researched and developed by a Dublin-based architect, David Craig. Craig was responsible for a number of high profile projects, including the competition winning design for the U2 Tower. Following the slowdown in construction, he looked for a new challenge.  A regular user of digital tools in design, he observed that the traditional styli were little more than digitised versions of pens and pencils. He then saw an opportunity for a new type of tool and built a new type of digital stylus that is designed around the user. Scriba is proclaimed as the world’s most innovative digital stylus and has won many design and innovation awards.

    David got in touch with us and wanted us to have a glimpse of the product that he thinks could see a new place in a market like India. After using it for a few days, we were impressed. However, we did feel the product does have a few more iterations to consider.

    The Choose Water bottle, developed by a British scientist James Longcroft, aims to replace plastic bottles and help save the world’s oceans from plastic waste.

    The outer case is made from 100% recycled sustainably sourced paper pulp, while the waterproof inner lining is made from fully biodegradable and sustainable materials – the exact details of the composition is a closely guarded secret whilst patents are still pending. The company claims the inner lining is actually beneficial to the environment, neutralising soil acidity and providing nutrients to aquatic environments.

    All elements of the bottle will fully biodegrade within ‘a few months’, whether they end up in the ocean or landfill. They don’t leave behind toxic micro-particles, or leach heavy metals into the environment

    The steel cap on the bottle will also rust and fully decompose within a year whereas, plastic usually takes hundreds of years to break down.

    Longcroft, who lives in Scotland, is finalising patents and started crowdfunding in order for the bottles to be mass produced and stocked in supermarket shelves. He has raised just over £35,000 and expects the water bottle to be launched in September 2018.

    In a first of its kind venture, a city-based startup is making pencils with waste paper instead of using wood. The box used for the pencils is also made of non-plastic paper packaging.

    Lavinesh Dayalani, who is born and raised in Aurangabad, gave shape to his idea in March when he launched his Bhoomi Eco. He says, "A global study has revealed that every year 82,000 trees are cut down to produce more than 14 billion pencils in the world. Another industrial survey done at national level states that India has 1.5 million schools and students above 315 million. Indian schools have made the use of pencils compulsory till 4th standard. Therefore, the writing instrument industry in India is estimated at a whopping Rs. 2600 crore."

    The statistics led the commerce graduate to usher into the eco-friendly pencil industry. Bhoomi Eco, which has its manufacturing facility at Chennai, has women from self-help groups working for it. The women are engaged in rolling the paper around the graphite lead. We use paper rolling method with toxin-free glue. "This process keeps lead at centre and provides good grip and prevents from breaking," Lavinesh says.
