Spyderco BaliYo Hand-Eye Coordination Pen
Spyderco's BaliYo is a ballpoint pen with a twist. And a flip. A spin. A full-on aerial show to put on once you've developed your hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, and learned to master this dual-use writing instrument.
If using pens to doodle and write in cursive isn't enough for you, or if you're like me and have no talent for doodling and writing in cursive, the BaliYo butterflies open on its non-ink end to reveal a pair of 180-degree rotating arms on pivots attached to the pen's barrel. The position of the pivots, plus finger-pad-friendly depressions at the ends of the arms give fidgeters free rein over pen swings, circles, and twirls.
The BaliYo pen is made from 3 pieces of close-tolerance polymer, with a pressurized ballpoint pen cartridge in the barrel. Movement possibilities range from simple swings to sophisticated two-handed tricks, some of which are included in an illustrated foldout guide Spyderco included with pen purchase.
