About this project

 

Our erasable pen system uses heat sensitive ink that turns clear when heated. The pen includes a built in electric heating element that's activated with the push of the button. Just turn on the eraser and wave the end of the pen near writing to watch it vanish! The experience is almost magical as the ink disappears right before your eyes. Our revolutionary erasing technology is completely non-contact to prevent smudging and damage to the writing surface.

The above image shows the various components of the HeatVanish pen and how they easily come apart. The pen is made of metal and has a premium feel in the hand.

Heat is generated using an electric element at the end of the pen. The element is activated only when the button is pressed and automatically shuts off after 15 seconds for safety. The included cap completely covers the button and heating element to prevent accidental activation and for safe storage.

The only difference between our prototype pens and the finished shipping product will our subtle name on the cap so you can let the world know that you're an early adopter of cutting edge erasing technology.

Each pen will come with a total of five replacement ink cartridges which can be easily swapped out. The sophisticated electronics inside the pen limit the available space for ink so we're including extra ink cartridges with each pen to make sure you don't run low on ink.

A standard micro USB cord comes with every pen for easy recharging. Simply plug the pen into any USB charger or port to charge the battery. A small blue light indicates when the pen is charging and when it's fully charged.

Risks and challenges

We have successfully completed four previous Kickstarter campaigns so we know what it takes to make our backers happy.

We have fully functioning prototypes of the pens that were fabricated by our manufacturing partners using the same processes that will be used in the full production run. We are very confident that first production run pens will be identical to the early prototype pens and meet our highest standards.

We will be using a professional fulfillment shipping company to guarantee smooth and efficient deliveries.

We will keep you updated every step of the way as the pens are produced and shipped out.
