Buck Rogers, Logan’s Run, Space: 1999, the Bionic Man, Astroboy, the Pilot Myu.
There is a person this pen calls to, the person who has dreamt at least once of walking the moon in a reflectorized spacesuit, who greets internet-enabled refrigerators with glee.
This is the quill Dr. Who could have dashed off notes to Daleks with. If it came in brass it would be steampunk heaven.
I cannot believe it did not take over the world and transform our lives, as the microwave did for fifties housewives.
Proof that good design never dies, just finds its proper time: the Pilot Myu has been reissued in a limited edition of 9,000.
