Pointless, boring meetings are the bane of existence to employees and committee members around the world. Whatever the language, the location, or the culture, they are an inescapable part of social life. Catching up on email via your laptop computer or smartphone might be an option, but it isn’t always possible to do in a discrete manner. Bringing along a book to read or even a engaging toy may well get you thrown out of the room.
This maze pen is a genius solution for this issue. Inside is a maze with little metal balls. The trick is to get the balls from the top of the pen to the bottom and back to the top again. It is harder than it sounds, and will provide the stimulation you need to stay sane and awake. For well less than five dollars, you can’t go wrong.
