    Ballpens for eternity?

    So two weeks ago, we had a defense about our researcher paper. One particular research paper that caught my attention was my classmate's. It was about ball pens. One statement he had there was... "Will ball pens still exist in the future even though we are living in modern electronics? (You know, because of technology.)"

    The question was hanging around in my head and I thought you guys would be interested. So, what do you think about it?

    Yes they will exist far into the future. After they are still more practical when out in the field. There will be some use for them for awhile. Especially since so many things require an ink signature.

    we still have pencils, and that was invented a long...... time ago. so i think we'll still have pens, though maybe they won't be with a ball. maybe techonology will be so advance that they'll invent a better way to make a pen, (that still uses ink).

    At the same time, how many people know how to correctly prepare and use a goose quill pen? Or know how to write with a fountain pen?? Or people who still use a mechanical typewriter???
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    We'll be using the pen for a long long time. It's not as if ink has any negative effects on nature(it's just burnt wood, natural pigments, and water) and artists love the stuff. I still use a fountain pen(sometimes)!

    Just because you're lazy doesn't mean you don't need pen. :P And besides, you were there when our classmate had that defense! LOL!

    True and because pen is more... ummm... how should I say it? Handy. Something like that.

    How do you think they'd invent without the ball?

    Though I think fountain pens are harder to operate! Too messy.

    I think that pens are eco-friendly. That's why I think pen will still exist in the future.
