Inventor Creates The Pen – Again

POWAY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An entrepreneur in Poway, California, has completely reinvented the pen all thanks to an afternoon in high school detention.

Inventor Colin Roche is the creator of the “PenAgain” – an ergonomically-designed, rocket- shaped pen that works as a crutch for your fingers, forcing kids and adults into the correct “tri-pod” grasp that should be used while writing.

And while the reinvented writing tool has made Roche a bonafide entrepreneur of school supplies, the success of his company can be traced back to his own days in high school.

Roche explains, “I came up with the idea for the pen while I was stuck in Breakfast Club-style high school detention. I was playing with a Transformers keychain that turned into a pen and the little robot legs on it looked like a crutch for your finger, and that’s when the idea sparked. I took a lighter and started burning the pen into the shape I wanted for a prototype, and I stunk up the entire classroom. It was hilarious!”

Now, some 20 years later, Roche is president of the rising pen company and is proud to have invented what he calls the “Porsche of Pens,” which is helping kids and adults enjoy writing again.

He jokes, “It’s amazing what a day in the big house can do for you!”
