Sprout | A Pencil That Grows ($20) is a very simple but excellent concept. We all know that as soon as a pencil gets down to the point where there's only an inch or so left it's pretty much useless. The Sprout lets you put that little stub to get use. The end of the Sprout has a seed capsule that is water activated, after you plant your pencil and water it a few times the capsule dissolves and the seed's start germinating. The plants usually take about a week to sprout. The Sprout pencils come in a number of varieties including vegetables, herbs and flowers like rosemary, tomato, marigold, and many more.
