Each tube of Japanese Pill Towels contains 10 pills. Each pill is really a towel seed harvested in Japan. Just hold a pill under water and it blossoms into a multipurpose towel – perfect for cleaning your hands after each ninja or space mission.

Inka Pen Travel Pen – $12.99

Inka Pen Travel Pen

The Inka Pen stores in its stainless steel case as a harmless looking keychain fob. A quick pull, and out pops the carbon fiber pen with its pressurized ink cartridge. Because it is pressurized, you can write at any angle, at any altitude, even underwater! And if you’re going to be writing for some time, you can unscrew the stainless steel fob and reconfigure your pen into Full-Size mode (that means it is, well, full size). There’s even a hidden stylus! The Inka Pen is the ultimate in portable writing. Couple it with some Mini Moleskine Notebooks and you’ll have all you need to jot down all your thoughts when you are on the go (or on the run or on the lam).

The Inka Pen Travel Pen is available from Think Geek for $12.99.

Don’t purchase from this company! I purchased something in October and I have yet to receive the product. First I got online to purchase a camping gadget and they ended up charging me $15 for shipping for a $10 product. I was very upset and then after a month I never received it. After sending an email and several email back and forth with someone from that company, I still never received the item. After several more emails back and forth, the guy said he will reimburse me for everything and as of December 19th, I still have yet to receive the product or have been reimbursed for the product and shipping. The only good thing that came from this was it was only $25 that they stole from me and it wasn’t much more. I just feel bad for all the other people they have done this to and hope you stay away from this company and save your money. Lesson learned on my part.
