A tool for a transformative visitor experience
— Caroline Baumann

A year and a half in the making by GE, Undercurrent and Sistelnetworks the pen is what Caroline Baumann, director of the Cooper-Hewitt, calls “a tool for a transformative visitor experience.” The initial concept came from Local Projects in collaboration with Manhattan architecture superstars Diller Scofidio + Renfro. This digital stylus gives new meaning to how one interacts with the world around them. Like so much of today’s consumer technology, the pen is based on the concept of “point... then click.”*

A highly talented team of GE Industrial Designers was selected to assist in the design of the pen. After an initial kick off, a particular direction, design and purpose was selected and the concept was brought from inception to production

This pen is not really a pen. On the table, it looks like a gray plastic crayon the size of a turkey baster. In the hand, it feels pleasing, chunky, hefty like a toddler’s rubber ball. And at the museum, it does something magical.
