Do people regularly carry pens with them in Japan and therefore the benefit of being able to pay for your coffee with your pen is a selling point? I am genuinely confused.
Maybe it’s easier to whip out a pen than a phone.
I always have a pen in my bag
But my bag has my purse, including my monzo card, in it as well
I’m always misplacing my pens, so I’d hate to own one of these
A contactless payment pen, incase your get asked for pin and forget, so have to sign.
Oh hey, it’s a FeliCa stored value card.
These are incredibly popular in Japan and I see these working really well. Not sure about the pen form factor but implementing the new Japanese FeliCa Starbucks Card into things like reusable cups makes a ton of sense to me.
I always carry a pen, but that one doesn’t look ergonomic. I’ve also lost some good pens
I would never pay that price for a pen…
