The useful everyday device we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. This is a self-cleaning and anti-virus ballpoint pen, created by the German company Messmer.
The plastic coating of the Messmer pen is what does the trick. It neutralizes viruses, including the coronavirus, which will prove potentially useful for everyone.
There has already been strong demand from clinics and medical offices, insurance companies, and communities.
Useful in many ways.
A number of rules and regulations have been adopted around the world as communities attempt to tackle the coronavirus.
One of these regulations discloses personal contact details as well as the time and date of visits to certain shops, restaurants, and bars. Usually, you are asked to provide these details when filling out a form and guess what, you need a pen to do so.
In total, it takes hours for employees to disinfect each pen one by one, and it can be worrying not to know whether the pen has been properly disinfected or not.
Messmer has announced that it has developed the world’s first ballpoint pen, that neutralizes viruses.
The secret lies in its plastic coating, which remains a secret because the company has not shared what it is made of. However, the labs have tested and shown that it actually works.
There is nothing to note the difference of this pen as it looks physically identical to regular ballpoint pens, but it will provide a lot of comfort to its future users.
Coronaviruses can be detected on normal plastic for five days and with us, coronaviruses are bombarded almost immediately through the plastic, said Manuel Deimel of Messmer Pen in Emmendingen, Germany.
So it’s great to know that the pen kills viruses efficiently and quickly. Interest in the pen has grown, and we can understand why.
There are a number of fascinating pens on the market, from real-world color swatches to endless, or smudge-free ink supplies, but none can kill viruses like this.
