I came across this 'Peg Pencil' on the Gizmodo design website. I feel the retractable pencil design by Yuta Watanabe is so simple but really catches the eye. As obvious and as unoriginally novel it may be, it has actually not been marketed before and is technically original. Furthermore, cleverly, the design allows for the user to extend the lead rather than sharpen it and even replace the lead rather than replace the pencil. This will be popular for the eco-freaks and novelty driven consumers alike!
