Why would anyone buy this combination nail clipper/ball point pen? What product manager unearthed the need to clip your nails and write a letter simultaneously? But I found this thing in Las Vegas, so who knows. There are many hard-to-understand things there.
I often blog about product design and buying the right tool for the task at hand, so I couldn’t resist taking that photo. It’s a good reminder for those who are looking for workplace digital signage to find a product designed for just that, and not something else like menu signs or airport departures.
While products designed for multiple purposes can occasionally come in handy, most of the time they’re just a pain.
